Turtle Island Quartet – Visiting artist
October 2, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 11:50 am
The Turtle Island Quartet, a modern string quartet, will perform Tuesday, Oct. 2 in Building 4, Room 115.
Since its inception in 1985, the Turtle Island Quartet has been a singular force in the creation of bold, new trends in chamber music for strings.
The journey has taken the quartet through forays into folk, bluegrass, swing, be-bop, funk, R&B, new age, rock, hip-hop, as well as music of Latin America and India … a repertoire consisting of hundreds of ingenious arrangements and originals.
Winner of the 2006 and 2008 Grammy Awards for Best Classical Crossover Album, Turtle Island fuses the classical quartet esthetic with contemporary American musical styles.
Their visit is sponsored by Quad City Arts Visiting Artist Series.
