Christopher U. Light Lectureship Concert "The String Quartets of Jefferson Friedman" Chiara Quartet

Playing "Chamber Music in Any Chamber," the Chiara Quartet expands the spaces for quartet music, reaching from the concert hall into clubs, bars, and galleries, but always returning chamber music to its roots. Described by the Seattle Post-Intelligencer as "vastly talented, vastly resourceful, and vastly committed to the music of their time," the quartet is also continually searching for new meaning within the well-established quartet canon. Their style is best described as a nonstop journey along the edges of expressive possibility: "luminous," "searing," (New York Times) "soulful," "biting," and possessing a "potent collective force" (Strings Magazine).
