GENERAL EVENT NOTICE: Due to recent concern over the spread of the corona virus, suggests confirming with the actual organizers that this event is still proceeding as planned.

Event Details:

Its name derived from creation mythology found in Native American Folklore,

the Turtle Island Quartet, since its inception in 1985, has been a singular force in the creation of bold, new trends in chamber music for strings. Winner of the 2006 and 2008 GRAMMY® Awards for Best Classical Cross-over category, Turtle Island fuses the classical quartet esthetic with contemporary American musical styles – a reflection of some of the most creative music-making today.”

Turtle Island has taken a journey through forays into folk, bluegrass, swing, be-bop, funk, R&B, new age, rock, hip-hop, as well as music of Latin America and India. It has included over a dozen recordings on various labels,  soundtracks for major motion pictures, TV and radio credits such as the Today Show, and feature articles in People and Newsweek magazines.
