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.
“The songs were atmospheric with ambiguous tonality, drawing chuckles along with hushed curiosity. They quivered, hovered, paused and slipped in and out of ghostly waltzes …” New York Times
