Return to the land of Goshen

This Friday at 7:30 marks the fourth concert we've given in Goshen, Indiana in this quartet's short life.  This is no coincidence, as I was born and raised in Goshen and my parents still live there as an active part of the Mennonite community surrounding Goshen College.  We've already played Haydn's "Seven Last Words" in the College Church, as well as music by Brahms, Ades and more in the acoustically wonderful Reith Recital Hall in Goshen College's Music Center.  You can take a trip back in time to last year's trip in a blog post about our snowy drive, or read about this year's concert on their website.

We return with a program of music by vocally inspired composers: Verdi, Mozart, Wolf and James Blake (as re-imagined by Chris Fisher-Lochhead).  All these composers have an amazing imagination for musical characters: sneaky villains, beautiful heroines and comic fools will all show their face as the musical drama unfolds.

For a little taste of what you'll see at the show, you can see us in a very intimate live performance at Comfort Music this summer:
