Fall 2020 Concerts
- BCC Rotunda Concert Series will be available for streaming online. Performers for Fall 2020 will be MIVOS Quartet, Sweet Plantain String Quartet and the Lahti Ensemble.
- MIVOS Quartet is made up of two violins, viola and cello and are “one of America’s most daring and ferocious new-music ensembles” (The Chicago Reader). MIVOS Quartet is devoted to performing works of contemporary composers and presenting new music to diverse audiences. This season they will be performing with vocalist Cecile McLorin Salvant at Jazz at Lincoln Center.
- Comprised of two violins, viola and cello, Sweet Plantain Quartet artfully fuses western classical music traditions in which they were trained with the hip-hop, jazz improv, and Latin rhythms. Through original compositions and arrangements, and with their use of extended percussive techniques, Sweet Plantain Quartet awakens audiences to new possibilities in chamber music.
- Lahti Ensemble consists of a soprano, clarinet, cello and piano. Created and led by composer, Jim Lahti, the ensemble will be performing the works of Beethoven, Brahms, Debussy and Lahti.
