The band will play as part of the Maturango Museum's 2017-2018 concert series.
The 2017-2018 Maturango Museum concert series continues with a concert performed by Los Angeles-based Quarteto Nuevo in the museum's Coso Gallery on Saturday, Jan. 20 at 7 p.m. Seats are abundant, but it is still best to purchase tickets early in the museum store or online, www.maturango.org.
Ticket prices are $20 and $5 for children 12 years old and younger. The museum is located at 100 E. Las Flores Ave.
Hear Quarteto Nuevo merge western classical, eastern European folk, Latin and jazz with an organic feel that packs a wallop! The ensemble’s razor-sharp precision is enhanced by jazzy interludes, lightly rumbling percussion motifs and mesmerizing rhythms. They effectively meld the music of ancient worlds and faraway places with a contemporary groove that enchants audiences of all ages!
Winners of the Beverly Hills National Auditions, Quarteto’s master musicians create emotionally-charged soundscapes with instruments and sensibilities that represent very different world cultures. Their unique instrumentation – soprano saxophone/alto flute (Damon Zick), cello (Jacob Szekely), guitar (Kenton Youngstrom) and hand percussion (Felipe Fraga) – richly colors their wide-ranging repertoire, from Heitor Villa-Lobos' "Bachianas Brasileiras" and Chick Corea’s “Children's Song No. 6" to Traditional Macedonian “Gadjarsko” and original works “Hector, Desmond and Titus”, “Rain Song” and “Dizer O Que.”
