but I’ve seen the future of chamber music
and it is Brooklyn Rider.”

Brooklyn Rider and Festival musicians join together for an evening of new works and improvisation that will carry us straight into the musical present, including the Virginia premiere of Evan Ziporyn’s string quartet Qi, and music from Brooklyn Rider’s newly released album, “A Walking Fire.” Musicians also include Festival Co-Directors Raphael Bell (cello) and Timothy Summers (violin), violinist James Ehnes, clarinetist Carol McGonnell, and percussionist Matthew Gold. There will also be a cash bar and concessions.

Featuring Brooklyn Rider in a more traditional concert, the quartet performs Mozart and Bartók
