Imani Winds and Catalyst Quartet

Mahaney Arts Center, Robison Hall

Two acclaimed ensembles join forces in a program highlighting experiences of (im)migration. Featured: the Vermont premiere of a new work by Jessie Montgomery, commissioned by Music Accord and Sphinx, and inspired by the Great Migration. Through the lens of her great-grandfather, Montgomery brings together spirituals and work songs that reflect his travels from Mississippi to the west, north, and back to Georgia. Through the special timbral effects of winds and strings, Montgomery transforms these stories, continuing the storytelling tradition passed down by her mother, a playwright, actor, and teacher. Tickets: $28 Public/22 Midd ID holders/10 Youth/6 Midd students. Read more>>

Cash bar and light refreshments available at intermission and after the concert.

Takács Quartet

Mahaney Arts Center, Robison Hall

Now entering its 44th season, the Takács Quartet is no stranger to the series, having performed at Middlebury 26 times since 1994. The New York Times recently lauded this Grammy-winning ensemble for “revealing the familiar as unfamiliar, making the most traditional of works feel radical once more.” Bartók’s string quartets have been at the very heart of the quartet’s repertory since its founding in Budapest in 1975; Middlebury audiences can enjoy the full cycle over two weekend concerts. A Nelson Fund event, cosponsored by the members of the Performing Arts Series Society (PASS). Reserved seating. Tickets: $30 public/$25 Midd ID card holders/$10 youth/$6 Midd students; PASS Members: $22 public/$16 Midd ID card holders/$8 youth/$5 Midd studentsRead more>>
