Just one night after kicking off the Chamber Series, the Calder Quartet launches the 2012-2013 Parallels season. Widely regarded for its commitment to discovering, commissioning and mentoring some of today's best emerging composers, the Quartet expands its work beyond the realm of contemporary classical music, spanning both genre and art form. The Calder Quartet's Parallels performance will take listeners on a journey through contemporary string quartet composition, featuring works by Philip Glass, Andrew Norman, JacobTV, Daniel Wohl and Jacob Cooper.
The box office for this performance opens on Monday, Oct. 1. Ticket prices are $18 for the general public, $12 for senior citizens and $10 for students. Amherst College students are admitted free.
