Virginia Arts Festival presents Catalyst Quartet
Thursday, April 15, 2021
This unique ensemble believes in the unity that can be achieved through music–and they imagine their programs and projects with this in mind, redefining and reimagining the classical music experience. Known for their “invariably energetic and finely burnished” performances (The New York Times), the Catalyst Quartet seeks out music too seldom heard in the classical setting, including this program that exclusively features the music of Black composers. This welcome Festival return engagement will find the Catalyst players on the stage of the Attucks Theatre, in the tradition of this historic venue’s vital role: honoring the innumerable contributions of Black artists.
