Chamber Music Concert: Catalyst Quartet

Sunday, February 19, 2023
7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

SBMA is excited to welcome the Catalyst Quartet back for their 7th performance. Hailed by The New York Times at its Carnegie Hall debut as “invariably energetic and finely burnished… playing with earthy vigor,” the Grammy Award-winning Catalyst Quartet was founded by the internationally acclaimed Sphinx Organization in 2010. The ensemblehas toured widely throughout the United States and abroad, including sold-out performances at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C., Chicago’s Harris Theater, Miami’s New World Center, and Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage at Carnegie Hall in New York.

Their program of all female composers includes Jessie Montgomery’s Strum, Teresa Careño’s Quartett, Germaine Tailleferre’s String Quartet, and Fanny Mendelssohn’s String Quartet in E-flat.

Chamber Music Concerts at SBMA are supported by the Katharine Putnam and Reginald M. Faletti Concert Fund with additional support from the Curletti Fund.

This event is in person at Santa Barbara Museum of Art's Mary Craig Auditorium.

Chamber Music Concert: Miró Quartet

Thursday, March 2, 2023
7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

Formed in 1995, the Austin, Texas-based Miró Quartet, is one of America’s most celebrated string quartets, having performed throughout the world on the most prestigious concert stages. They won first prizes at the Banff International String Quartet Competition and Naumburg Chamber Music Competition, and in 2005, became the first ensemble ever to be awarded an Avery Fisher Career Grant. The Miró is quartet-in-residence at Chamber Music Northwest in Portland, OR and Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival in Washington State.

They will perform Haydn’s Quartet in B-flat major, Op. 64, No. 3, Caroline Shaw’s Microfictions*, and Antonin Dvořák’s Quartet in G major, Op. 106.

* Caroline Shaw’s work will be performed three times this season. This New York City-based contemporary musician and composer became the youngest composer to win the Pulitzer Prize for music in 2013. She is often cited as proof that classical music has an exciting future.

Chamber Music Concerts at SBMA are supported by the Katharine Putnam and Reginald M. Faletti Concert Fund with additional support from the Curletti Fund.

This event is in person at Santa Barbara Museum of Art's Mary Craig Auditorium.
