This is a groupmuse

A live concert in a living room, backyard, or another intimate space. They're casual and friendly, hosted by community members.


We are so happy to bring Friction Quartet back to Richmond after an absence of several years. This talented group eagerly tackles 20th- and 21st-century composers including, in this concert, Caroline Shaw (winner of the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for Music), Alban Berg, and Leos Janacek.

Friction Quartet includes: Doug Machiz, cello; Otis Harriel, violin; Kevin Rogers, violin; and Mitso Floor, viola.

Critics said the ensemble...
• “is sublimely gifted and exquisitely skilled”
• “brings charismatic urgency and fierce commitment”
• “built on determination and fearlessness”
• “absolutely stunning” —Phillip Glass
