Chesapeake Music and Inn at Perry Cabin will host the Grammy Award winning Harlem Quartet at the Inn at Perry Cabin in St. Michaels, MD, on April 1 at 5:30 p.m. Praised for its “panache” by the New York Times and for “bringing a new attitude to classical music, one that is fresh, bracing and intelligent” by the Cincinnati Enquirer, the Harlem Quartet, the Silver Medal prize winner at the 2010 Chesapeake Chamber Music (CCM) Competition, is soaring.
Members of the Harlem Quartet have performed with such orchestras as the New York Philharmonic, the Boston Pops, and the Baltimore and National Symphonies, to name a few. The quartet’s versatility and artistic skills have paired them with such diverse artists as Itzhak Perlman and pianists Misha Dichter and Chick Corea. With a desire to advance diversity in classical music, the quartet is highlighting works by minority composers and will soon launch its fourth CD – a collaboration with the Chicago Sinfonietta featuring a new arrangement of West Side Story for string quartet and orchestra.
