The Cortlandt String Quartet will present a unique program of traditional and contemporary classical chamber music featuring an ensemble of virtuoso artists who are well known both in the US and abroad.
Andy Stein, a two-time Grammy award-winning violinist and conductor, is perhaps best known for his 22-year run with Garrison Keillor on A Prairie Home Companion and as a 40-year member of Vince Giordano's Nighthawks.
Joining Andy will be violist Rachel Evans, a member of the Sante Fe Opera Company, violist Sarah Adams, currently the principal violist of the Riverside Symphony, and Argentine cellist Leo Grinhauz, a dedicated tanguero, specializing in combining Latin jazz within the tradition of the string quartet.
Their repertoire includes Antonin Dvorak's "American" String Quartet Op. 96, Mozart String Quartet K589 in Bb, and Wapango by Cuban Jazz clarinetist Paquito D'Rivera.
This concert will be on our indoor stage. Tickets are $20 and may be purchased HERE or at the door.
