Cornell Concert Series, Spring 2017

March 25, Barnes Hall: The Jerusalem Quartet

The Jerusalem Quartet, making its Cornell Concert Series debut, is hailed by The Strad as “one of the young, yet great quartets of our time.” A record three-time recipient of the BBC Music Magazine Chamber Music Award, this ensemble has garnered international acclaim for its rare combination of passion and precision.

April 28, Klarman Hall: eighth blackbird

Winners of four Grammy® awards, this Chicago-based sextet has provoked and impressed audiences for over 20 years. Their 2017 CCS program collaborates with the Sleeping Giant composer collective and includes multimedia element visuals to draw upon the timeless dark side of American folk music and European fairy tales.
