June 21, 2017 Concert – Portland String Quartet
$0.00 – $20.00
The Portland String Quartet
Wednesday, June 21 – 7:00 pm
This concert will be a special tribute to Sister Frances Carr – a dear friend of the Portland String Quartet for over 45 years. The Portland String Quartet will also honor Maine composer Walter Piston (1894-1967). Born in Rockland, Maine, Piston taught two generations of American composers at Harvard and in the world beyond through his acclaimed text books on Harmony and Theory. The Washington Post called the PSQ’s recordings of his complete string quartets: “… a dialogue on the highest musical level.” His stunning and jazzy Quartet No.5 will be complimented with masterpieces by Mozart and Debussy.
