On October 31st at 2 pm, the Newport String Project will present an afternoon of chamber music performed by the Newport String Quartet at the Great Hall on the grounds of St Columba’s in Middletown.
The program will explore the music of America from three very different perspectives. Antonin Dvorak’s beloved String Quartet in F Major, op 96 “American” will be paired with music by two of the most dynamic voices in American contemporary music. Chickasaw composer Jerod Impichchaachaaha’ Tate’s Pisachi (Reveal) draws from Hopi and Pueblo Indian music, rhythms and forms. Taking inspiration from the work of Alvin Ailey, Rita Dove and Langston Hughes, Jessie Montgomery describes her piece Source Code as an exploration of the black spiritual as a significant element of the DNA of American music.
