Summertime out west
We hope everyone is enjoying the delicious days of summer! In a few days, we'll be headed to Colorado to perform for the first time in Steamboat Springs at the Strings Music Festival. In addition to bringing The Shuffle Effect to Steamboat, we'll also be collaborating with composer-violinist Daniel Bernard Roumain (DBR). We will perform DBR's string quartet Parks which he has adapted for string quintet just for us.Following these concerts, we'll head to our beloved Aspen, Colorado to work together on our newest project, our very own festival. The Forward Festival will launch in the 2013-2014 season in another place near and dear to our hearts: Sarasota, Florida. This is a hugely exciting new venture for us, and we'll be in touch again very soon to give you more information about it. For our friends in Aspen who are wondering why you haven't seen us in our usual post at Paradise Bakery, exciting changes are happening! Read all about it here: Our Fall 2013 calendar is wonderfully busy, with concerts in the Virgin Islands, Wyoming, Iowa, Miami and more! We will also continue our residency at the cell, with concerts there in October and December. We hope to see you soon!
