At the heart of ETHEL, the acclaimed New York City-based contemporary music string quartet, is a collaborative ethos — a quest for a common creative expression that is forged in the celebration of community. Nearly 20 years into its existence, the group has conceived over 150 works by groundbreaking composers. ETHEL has gathered music of passionate affection and dedication from cultures of the world, and practices as old as time. Following their own conviction that music can elicit intuitive understanding, facilitate moments of empathy as well as awe and inspiration, ETHEL guides an exotic and deeply informative journey through the music of the great religions, secular love, and communal celebration.
