Join Friends of Chamber Music and the Clyfford Still Museum for a Sunday afternoon with the Ivalas Quartet. This virtual program, recorded live at the Clyfford Still Museum, will stream on the Friends of Chamber Music’s Facebook page and YouTube channel starting at 1 p.m. on November 8. The program will feature pieces by Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, George Walker, and Beethoven, with a special appearance by George Walker’s son Gregory.
Founded in Ann Arbor in 2016, the Ivalas Quartet is composed of violinists Reuben Kebede and Anita Dumar, violist Aimée McAnulty, and cellist Pedro Sánchez. Ivalas’ members are from both the Black and Latinx communities and the group was formed with the intent to play a part in bringing greater visibility to musicians of color. “We feel a strong responsibility to not only play with all of our hearts but to strive for the highest standard of playing in every performance, and to be living proof of the power of diversity in all art forms.”
This free community event will be available to view online until January 31.
