Our 2023~2024 Season
Isidore String Quartet Sat. Feb. 24, 2024 - 7pm Southern Theatre
Hailed as “passionate musicians that approach their work…with a mature seriousness and purpose” (Barry Shiffman, Banff International String Quartet Competition), Isidore String Quartet is taking the chamber music world by storm after their triumph of winning the Banff International String Quartet Competition in 2022. The ensemble credits their breakthrough to ‘approaching the established as if it were new, and the new as if it were firmly established.’ When not occupied with one of their prestigious residencies, Isidore String Quartet explores the vast landscape of body awareness, mental preparation, and performance practice through the Alexander Technique.
Chanticleer Sat. Apr. 27, 2024 - 7pm Southern Theatre
Declared as “the world’s reigning male chorus” by The New Yorker, Grammy-award winning ensemble Chanticleer’s repertoire spans classical, gospel, jazz, popular, and new works. With over 40 albums recorded, Chanticleer is credited as being one of the most prominent recording and touring ensembles in the world and is one of Billboard magazine’s Top 10 best-selling classical artists. Best captured by The Boston Globe, “The singing of Chanticleer is breathtaking in its accuracy of intonation, purity of blend, variety of color and swagger of style.” The group was founded by Louis Botto in 1978 in San Francisco.
