Harlem (String) Quartet

Harlem Quartet advances diversity in classical music while engaging new audiences with varied repertoire that includes works by minority composers. Their mission to share their passion with a wider audience has taken them around the world; from a 2009 performance at The White House for President Obama and First Lady, Michelle Obama, to a highly successful tour of South Africa in 2012, and numerous venues in-between. The musically versatile ensemble has performed with such distinguished performers as Itzhak Perlman, Ida Kavafian, Carter Brey, Fred Sherry, Misha Dicter, Jeremy Denk, and Paquito D’Rivera. Their most recent recording, Hot House, with jazz master Chick Corea and percussionist Gary Burton, was a 2013 multi-Grammy Award winner

Hailed by BBC Radio 3 as “a real poet of the piano,” Andrew Tyson is emerging as a distinctive and important new musical voice. Andrew was awarded the 1st Prize, Audience Prize and the Mozart Prize at the 2015 Concours Géza Anda in Zürich. The Concours was founded in memory of Hungarian pianist Géza Anda by his widow Hortense Anda-Bührle. As a result of this victory, Andrew will perform upwards of 100 concerts throughout Europe over the course of the next three years under the auspices of The Géza Anda Foundation.



3:00 p.m., Sunday, February 21, 2016  


Called “the world’s reigning male chorus” by The New Yorker magazine, the San Francisco based GRAMMY® award-winning ensemble Chanticleer celebrates its 38th season in 2015-16, performing in the United States, Germany, Austria, Italy, Hong Kong, Singapore, Macao, and the Republic of China. Chanticleer will also represent the United States at the biannual Festival de las Chiquitas in Bolivia, celebrating the rich musical heritage of the South American missions. Praised by the San Francisco Chronicle for their “tonal luxuriance and crisply etched clarity,” Chanticleer is known around the world as “an orchestra of voices” for the seamless blend of its twelve male voices from soprano to bass range and its original interpretations of vocal literature, from Renaissance to jazz and popular genres, as well as contemporary composition.  Chanticleer singers come from 9 states and many different backgrounds to create a seamless ensemble.
