The Galax String Quartet explores contemporary music through their period musical instruments. Using "Baroque finesse," the group discovers new textures and exploits the warm, delicate qualities that emerge from light bows on gut strings. For this concert, the group will be joined by contralto Karen Clark, who will explore musical works based on poetry by Gary Snyder, Henry David Thoreau and others.
