FCM is pleased to welcome the Spektral Quartet in their FCM debut. Named “Chicagoans of the Year” (2017), Spektral is known for creating seamless connections across centuries, drawing in the listener with charismatic deliveries and bold, inquisitive programming.

". . . they have everything: a supreme technical command that seems to come easily, a capacity to make complicated music clear, and, most notably . . . an ability to cast a magic spell." - New York Times

Spektral is “...highly-interactive, creative and collaborative ... unlike anything its intended audience – or anyone else – has ever heard.”  – Gramophone
