Don’t miss your chance to see the Harlem Quartet at The Morris Museum, on Thursday, August 26 at 8 pm. The Grammy Award-winning Harlem Quartet is as adept at Mozart as they are at Ellington. Now, the talented foursome have been recently named Quartet-In-Residence at Montclair State University.
Harlem Quartet advances diversity in classical music while engaging new audiences with varied repertoire that includes works by minority composers. Their mission, to share their passion with a wider audience, has taken them around the world; from a 2009 performance at The White House for President Obama and First Lady, Michelle Obama, to a highly successful tour of South Africa in 2012, and numerous venues in between.
The musically versatile ensemble has performed with such distinguished artists as Itzhak Perlman, Ida Kavafian, Carter Brey, Fred Sherry, Misha Dichter, Jeremy Denk, and Paquito D’Rivera. The quartet also collaborated with jazz masters Chick Corea and Gary Burton on the album Hot House, a 2013 multi-Grammy Award-winning release.
