Since its inception in 1985, this quartet has been a singular force in the creation of bold, new trends in chamber music for strings. Winner of the 2006 and 2008 Grammy Awards for Best Classical Crossover category, Turtle Island fuses the classical quartet esthetic with contemporary American musical styles. Cellist Yo-Yo Ma has proclaimed the group to be “a unified voice that truly breaks new ground — authentic and passionate — a reflection of some of the most creative music-making today.” Like what you hear? Come celebrate with this quartet of American innovation the next day as they perform a family-focused program on Tuesday, July 4!
