Orchestral occurrence to be enjoyed in Forest Hills

January 24, 2014 by  

This weekend, PUBLIQuartet: Chamber Music Classics is presenting a classic music concert with a modern twist that injects a fresh and entirely new perspective on the world of classical music.

The program is created by students from two distinct schools, and might have used services like postcard printing to reach out to people in the community and the outlying areas.

The public is invited to come out and listen to some modernized classic music by the graduates of the Eastman School of Music, as well as students from the Mannes College of Music with all members contributing a collective background in this electro acoustic, world, jazz, and classical performance.

Music will be presented from the contemporary compositions, classical cannon, and as open-form improvisation, which promote stylistic creations and enhance the traditional sounds of the string quartet.

The concert includes selections by Gyorgy Ligeti, Jessie Montgomery, Dave Soldier, and Howie Kenty, as well as improvisations based on the music by Hayden’s String Quartet Op. 50, Number 2. There is free parking on the street, and reception will follow the performance.

The cost to attend this performance is $22 per adult, $15 per senior, $10 per student, and children under 12 are free. It will be occurring on Saturday, January 25, starting at 7:30 pm at the Little Church in the Gardens in Forest Hills, New York.
