Thalea String Quartet & Michelle Cann
February 3 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
The Athenaeum is pleased to continue the 2019-2020 season of the Barbara & William Karatz Chamber Series. Enjoy chamber music as it was intended–in a warm, intimate setting, where you are treated as a guest in our historic home. All concerts are followed by a private reception with the artists.
Florence Price was disadvantaged as a classical composer in being both African American and a woman. Over the last decade, her music has been rediscovered, resulting in performances and recordings after 50 years of neglect.
The Thalea String Quartet will play Florence Price’s arrangements of spirituals and folk songs. They’ll be joined by pianist Michelle Cann, who had the orchestral accompaniment of Price’s “Concerto in One Movement” arranged for string quartet.
See our website for more details and the planned program for the evening.
The price for the concert is: $40 member / $45 nonmember
