161st-time host

Groupmuse and Think Olio (the Groupmuse of education)* are teaming up to present a new phenomenon called the Oliomuse, where we combine the magic of Groupmuse with the power of Think Olio.

We'll be hearing a dual lecture/musical performance to bring the history of the string quartet to life in BOTH our ears and our minds. Whitney George, professor at Brooklyn College Conservatory (+conductor +composer), will be walking us through an exploration of the development of the string quartet starting during the late Baroque period and taking us through to the 21st century. She will be dissecting in detail the musical intricacies of each seminal work discussed, to discover the thread that weaves disparate pieces into a cohesive narrative.

Interspersed throughout her lecture will be movements from and fragments of string quartet pieces that musically illustrate the lecture, performed live as we progress along this musical journey together. The string quartet will be performing pieces by Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Ravel, Bartok, and more.

There will be free beer sponsored by Sixpoint Brewery at this event, so come snag a spot on the floor to relax and enjoy the warmth and double stimulation of this live music lecture!

**A note about our wonderful friends: Think Olio is bringing education to the masses by connecting lifelong learners with lectures and education events normally reserved for the university setting. Think Olio exists as a conduit for fruitful discussions, a dissent from the regurgitation of facts, and a distributor of new perspectives. Check them out here.

How about some information on what quartets and the performers!?

Hi all! We're getting quite excited for tonight here at the Strand. To get in, use the door directly to the left of the Strand. Take the elevator up to the third floor, and check into the Rare Book Room when you arrive. Doors open at 7PM, and the program is set to start at 7:30. See you all very soon!
