    Apollo Chamber Players 

    Saturday, September 21, 2019 at 7:30 PM

    The Houston TX based Apollo Chamber Players “performs with rhythmic flair and virtuosity” (The Strad) and has “found fruitful territory” (Houston Chronicle) through innovative, globally-inspired programming and multicultural new music commissions. Recent winner of Chamber Music America’s prestigious Residency Partnership award, the quartet has performed for sold-out audiences at Carnegie Hall twice in the past five years, and it holds the distinction of being the first American chamber ensemble to record and perform in Cuba since the embargo relaxation. Apollo is featured frequently on American Public Media’s nationally-syndicated program Performance Today.

    The evening's concert, Croatian Connections, explores the Croatian inspirations of the 'Father of the String Quartet', Josef Haydn, and music celebrating Croatian cultural heritage. The Wisconsin premiere of a new string quartet inspired by folk music from Croatia and Serbia by NYC-based composer Alexandra du Bois adds a contemporary perspective - a bridge to common ground through ethnic folk music - between oft-warring cultures.
