Lecture-Concert Series: The Grammy Award-Winning Parker String Quartet

03/6/2018, 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM



Back by popular demand… AGAIN! Inspiring performances, luminous sound, and exceptional musicianship are the hallmarks of the Grammy Award-winning Parker Quartet. Renowned for its dynamic interpretations and polished, expansive colors, the group has rapidly distinguished itself as one of the preeminent ensembles of its generation. Their recording of Ligeti’s complete works for string quartet won the 2011 Grammy Award for Best Chamber Music Performance. In 2016 they released a recording of Mendelssohn’s Quartets which took them on a European tour in 2017. Since 2014 they have been artists-in-residence at Harvard University. One of the finest and most exciting string quartets you will hear anywhere.

With generous funding support from the A-State Diversity Program, the College of Liberal Arts and Communication, the Department of Music, the A-State String Society, and the A-State Music Outreach Program.
