Tonight at 6 PM Eastern Standard Time, my string quartet, THE AMBROSIA STRING QUARTET, will be performing at the Millennium Stage of the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. We will be playing exciting new works by 7 young Native American composers.
The performance will be broadcast live over the internet from the Millennium Stage website. You will need to download RealPlayer, a free program, in advance in order to view the performance.
For anyone in the area, we are also doing this performance at 1 PM at the National Museum of the American Indian's Rasmuson Theater.
The concerts are part of the CLASSICAL NATIVE festival. I'll write more soon about this great project and how we came to be involved.
Interesting. I think I'll check it out.
Caeli, what a neat opportunity! What have these works been like to play? Are they going to be made available for others to play? Very cool concert! My best to these composers and their teacher.
I just watched the performance. Very nice. I particularly enjoyed the camera work and am inspired to go work on my vibrato right this minute. What a wonderful opportunity you young ladies had. Kuddos.
