And now, for something completely different! This vibrant young quartet is committed to transforming the chamber music experience for its audiences, and to exploring lost or rarely heard music. On both scores, they succeed overwhelmingly: using innovative programming, thematic concerts and popular music, cameras and video to enhance the visuals, and speaking from the stage, Carpe Diem is bringing new audiences to a classic art and drawing critical acclaim for their mission. “The Carpe Diem String Quartet is to be commended for its adventurousness in rescuing these appealing works from neglect. The playing is excellent, unanimous in spirit, homogeneous in tone, with fine give-and-take between leading and supporting” (Strings Magazine). Hear this innovative ensemble in Korine Fujiwara’s Fiddle Suite Montana. Tickets are available at the door tonight.

Be sure to join a free post-concert discussion with the artists.

This performance is part of our Storied Strings series. For more concerts in this series and to learn more about the violin in America, visit strathmore.org/storiedstrings.
