Lakes Area Music Festival: Altius Quartet
Featuring: Joshua Ulrich, Andrew Giordano, Andrew Krimm, Robbie Erhard
Entering its second decade presenting the nation’s best classical musicians, the Lakes Area Music Festival–Artists in Residence–has recently announced a new program for 2019. A String Quartet Fellowship will invite one emerging professional ensemble to Minnesota for a paid summer of intensive rehearsal and performance opportunities.
Altius Quartet is an ensemble determined to further the art of chamber music through performance, education, and outreach. Altius strives to communicate art to a more diverse audience through community engagement and innovative repertoire. Hailed as “rich” and “captivating,” the Altius Quartet is garnering an international reputation and enrapturing the hearts of audiences through their charisma and dynamism.
Altius Quartet is deeply committed to outreach, often performing concerts and teaching master classes in public schools and alternative performing venues including: jazz clubs, bars, and homeless shelters.
The performance will be held in The Lounge with doors opening at 6:00 pm for food and beverage service prior to the 7:00 pm performance.
Open to the public; no tickets required, no set admission fee (suggested $20.00 donation)
