Become immersed in the energy of this young ensemble in a program that will mix classic greats with jazz, including string quartets from Beethoven and Mendelssohn and jazz standards from Dizzy Gillespie and more. Praised for its "panache" by The New York Times, the Harlem Quartet advances diversity in classical music and engages young and new audiences through the discovery and presentation of varied repertoire. Since their debut in 2006 at Carnegie Hall, the Harlem Quartet has performed throughout the U.S. and in France, the U.K., Belgium, Panama, Canada, and South Africa. They have collaborated with violinist Itzhak Perlman, cellist Carter Brey, and clarinetist Paquito D'Rivera, as well as with jazz legends Chick Corea and Gary Burton, whom they joined for their six-month Hot House tour in 2012. In 2009 they performed for President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama at the White House and appeared Christmas morning on NBC's Today Show.
