on the Forbes Library lawn
Free – all ages welcome
Relax with a lawn concert before the heat of the day! Enjoy a late summer morning with some chamber music on the Forbes lawn with the Quark Quartet.
The Quark Quartet is a group of local musicians who enjoy sharing both familiar, beloved string quartets and lesser-known music by under-represented composers. They will perform Coleridge-Taylor Perkinson’s lush, jazz-infused “Calvary” quartet; selected movements from Beethoven’s magnificent late quartet Opus 132; and selected movements from Gabriela Lena Frank’s playful and exciting “Leyendas: An Andean Walkabout.”
The Quark Quartet were Forbes Library’s 2020 Musicians In Residence. They are Naomi Lesley and Marijo Sherrill (violins), Jessica Corwin (viola), and Sally Greenebaum (cello).
