PREVIEW: The Aizuri Quartet

On Friday, October 26 at 8pm, the New York City-based Aizuri Quartet, grand prize winner of the 2018 M-Prize Chamber Arts Competition, will be performing at Rackham Auditorium.

Notable for their unusual collaborations, the Aizuri Quartet was also String Quartet-in-Residence at the Metropolitan Museum of Art for the 2017-18 season, among other achievements.  The Friday night program includes works both new and old by the likes of Vartabed, Bartók, Caroline Shaw, and Paul Wiancko. The pieces by the latter two composers were written specifically for the Quartet.

Don’t miss what is sure to be a fresh, exciting, and virtuosic performance! Tickets may be purchased online at https://ums.org/performance/m-prize-winner-2018/ or in person at the Michigan League Ticket Office.
