Friday7:00 PM"Turtle Island Quartet"
The Vail Series presents “Turtle Island Quartet.” Since its inception in 1985, Turtle Island Quartet 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 Crossover category, Turtle Island fuses the classical quartet esthetic with contemporary American musical styles. Turtle Island Quartet exhibits what Yo-yo Ma called “a reflection of some of the most creative music-making today.” Turtle Island Quartet will be performing Miles Davis’ seminal recording “The Birth of the Cool”, and the Denison Museum has gained permission from the Kennedy Museum of Art to exhibit a collection of Herman Leonard photographs of iconic jazz legends, including Miles Davis, during TIQ’s residency.Address: Swasey Chapel, Denison University, 200 Chapel Drive, Granville, OH 43023Open to Public: YesPrice/Tickets: FREEEvent Contact: Michael Morris, 740-587-6539
