Described as “not classical...but not not classical," string quartet and UMD School of Music alumni invoke dodge genre classification by tying together many traditions including bluegrass, Appalachian fiddle tunes, jazz, minimalism, and even 16th century motets to create truly unique contemporary repertoire, written by and for the group. The Artist Partner Program brings you the new Speed of Sound Sessions (S.O.S.), a celebration of musicians who support and promote composers whose work was created in the 21st Century and who respond to the contemporary world in which we live. The S.O.S. Sessions are a fun, interactive way to engage with adventurers just like you.
