Free Family Concert: The Ariel String Quartet

Sunday, August 6, 2017

Tiara Acoustic Shell, 2:00 PM


Join the Ariel Quartet in a family-friendly exploration of chamber music. The Quartet will perform portions of the works they will be including on their more formal performances at Tippet Rise to introduce the instruments of the string quartet, illustrate different types of musical conversations, demonstrate techniques string players use to produce a wide rage of sounds on their instruments, and how four individuals work together to create a unified sound.


Audience members of all ages are welcome to join the Quartet as they present music by Schubert, Mozart, and Bartok in an informal, informative and fun way. Attendees will also be invited to participate in a question and answer session with the Quartet members, who have been playing together since they were young students. The Ariel's infectious enthusiasm for chamber music and friendly, engaging personalities will provide audience members of all ages with a new perspective on the art form.
