Dinah Bodkin Safety Guardian

Our last Groupmuse before the pandemic was December 8 2019. Almost exactly three years later we are back. So eager to welcome music lovers and musicians to my home all over again.
As of now, we are asking everyone to mask. We may adjust that depending on the number of attendees. If you want to come but really do not want to mask, let me know. We can probably accomodate.

Program

Rasa String Quartet String Quartet

Join the Rasa String Quartet for an evening that explores the art of musical portraiture through the vivid storytelling of folk traditions. The program pairs the works of three modern American folk-inspired composers with a Beethoven string quartet.

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky: Waltz of the Flowers from the Nutcracker, Arr. Eunghee Cho
William Grant Still: Lyric Quartet
Rhiannon Giddens: At the Purchaser’s Option
Shelley Washington: Middleground
Ludwig Van Beethoven: String Quartet Op. 18 No. 3 in D Major

The Boston-based Rasa String Quartet finds their niche exploring the musical space where classical and folk traditions intersect and influence one another. They are the 2022-23 ensemble in residence at Phillips Exeter Academy and winners of the 2022 Associazione Europea Di Musica E Comunicazione International Chamber Music Competition (Italy,) the 2021 Music Teachers National Association Chamber Music Competition (ATL,) and the 2021 Chamber Music Yellow Springs Competition (OH.) The quartet can be found collaborating with the preeminent folk musicians of today, performing their own programs in venues and festivals around the country, and participating in artistic and educational residencies at a variety of institutions. Inspired by the connection between music and storytelling at the heart of folk traditions, Rasa String Quartet creates engaging and fresh programs that are approachable by a wide range of people. Educating their audiences by contextualizing the genres, styles, and composers they present, they invite their listeners to experience a variety of both familiar and unfamiliar sounds with curiosity and openness.
