The Grammy Award-winning Turtle Island Quartet teams up with extraordinary jazz pianist Cyrus Chestnut to present a brand new program that embraces a range of composers—from the giant of ragtime and jazz, Jelly Roll Morton, to Thelonious Monk, a modern jazz era genius. Since its inception in 1985, Turtle Island Quartet has been a singular force in the creation of bold, new trends in chamber music for strings, fusing the classical quartet esthetic with contemporary American musical styles. Hailed as the quintessential New World string quartet of the 21st century, cellist Yo-Yo Ma celebrates Turtle Island Quartet as “a unified voice that truly breaks new ground - authentic and passionate - a reflection of some of the most creative music-making today.” Making soulful and sweet connections that delve deeply into the jazz and classical traditions, the quartet and Chestnut will display their formidable collective virtuosity in one unforgettable evening. Don’t miss it! https://turtleislandquartet.com
