A not-to-be missed musical experience! Brooklyn Rider is an adventurous string quartet that performs contemporary music with the energy of four young rock stars. Let the music move you as they bring to life the four elements of earth, air, water and fire as a musical metaphor for both the inner workings of a quartet — and the inter-related effects of climate change on our planet. Performing pieces commissioned by the Quartet as well as by other contemporary composers, they’ll deliver an inspiring musical call to action. Will you heed the call?
