A homecoming of sorts: four of Con Vivo Music’s most well-known performers, including 3 founding Artistic Board members, come together to play string quartets that were foundational in their development as musicians. From Antonín Dvořák’s beloved “American” Quartet to CVM violinist Mazz Swift’s first work for string quartet, “Fast Stone,” with a stop across the Hudson for Philip Glass’ Quartet #2, “Company,” the program will be an autumnal feast for the senses.
CVM is pleased to present this concert in collaboration with Drawing Rooms and JCity Realty as part of the Jersey City Art & Studio Tour. Our performance will be in JCity Reality’s gallery space among artwork curated by Drawing Rooms.
