Ivalas Quartet in conversation and performance
Aug, 28th

The Great Lakes Chamber Music Festival was thrilled to host the August Virtual Festival with Artistic Director Paul Watkins. Nine Festival performances over five days provided extraordinary music and artist conversations to end the summer on a high note!

Beethoven in Color
Crested Butte, CO
Aug, 15th - 5pm

Continuing their mission of representing musicians of all colors, the Ivalas Quartet blisteringly performs Beethoven’s greatest middle-period quartet (which includes perhaps Beethoven’s most beautiful slow movement) alongside works by two composers of color. The first composer, Jesse Montgomery, is amongst the most important young composers today; her work, “Starburst,” was performed at CBMF in 2017 with Tito Munoz leading the Crested Butte Festival Symphony. The second work is by Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, the Romantic Afro-English composer. Don’t miss an opportunity to hear these great works!   The Ivalas’ mission is to present and represent composers and musicians of color, and they do so with energy, thoughtfulness, and passion.
