Introducing Omnibus, the exciting new young string quartet that will play a fascinating program, including the Gavotte for 2 Violins - 19th century music by Jean-Marie LeClair. New music follows by two American women composers: Pale Yellow for Piano Trio by Jennifer Higdon, 2010 Pulitzer Prize winner, and Entr'acte for String Quartet by Caroline Shaw, 2013 Pulitzer Prize winner. You will also love the beauty of Debussy's String Quartet, a masterpiece of French Impressionism. The program ends with Irish Folk Melodies for 2 Violins and Cello, a specialty of this group.
