The Jamestown Concert Association continues its 2017-18 season of Transcending Borders with Carpe Diem String Quartet. One of the most unique and sought-after ensembles on the concert stage today, the quartet will perform on Friday, April 20th at 8 PM at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, 410 N. Main St., Jamestown.
Carpe Diem has defied easy classification while quickly becoming one of America’s premier “indie” string quartets, with programming that reflects its passions for Gypsy, tango, folk, pop, rock, and jazz-inspired music alongside the traditional string quartet repertoire. The quartet is dedicated to community engagement, and regularly performs programs specifically designed to relate to audiences of all ages and establish chamber music’s relevance to their lives. They continue to rack up accolades and awards. For three consecutive years, Carpe Diem was the only quartet in America chosen to receive the prestigious PNC Foundation’s ArtsAlive Awards, and they have received rave reviews. Strings Magazine said, “Carpe Diem must be one of the most adventurous groups of its kind.” We are delighted to have them return to Jamestown this spring.
