January 17, 2018 – Renowned internationally for their genre-crossing approach, the Harlem Quartet will return to Gainesville with a guest pianist in concert at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 10, 2018, in the Santa Fe College Fine Arts Hall.
This is the second time that the multicultural, multiethnic, multitalented Harlem Quartet has performed at SF. Members of the group—Ilmar Gavilán and Melissa White (violin), Jaime Amador (viola) and Felix Umansky (cello)—will be joined by special guest Aldo López-Gavilán (piano), Ilmar’s brother.
“We are thrilled that the Harlem Quartet, whose mission is to diversify and create new audiences for classical music, is returning to Gainesville with their special guest,” said SF Coordinator of Cultural Programs Raul Villarreal. “Each of these musicians is a seasoned solo artist and together, they’re magical!”
The Harlem Quartet has actively built a repertoire that includes works by composers from different ethnic and cultural backgrounds. Their musical collaborations range from those with violinist Itzhak Perlman, clarinetist Paquito D’Rivera and pianist Misha Dichter to performances with jazz legends Chick Corea, Gary Burton and Stanley Clarke.
Tickets in all sections of the hall are $15 for adults, $9 for seniors and children, and free for SF students with a college identification card. For ticket information, call the Box Office at 352-395-4181. Tickets may be purchased online at sfcollege.edu/finearts.
