ETHEL and Friends: Our 2018-19 residency at the

Metropolitan Museum of Art

ETHEL returns to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2018-19 with ETHEL and Friends, a music series programmed expressly for the Met’s Balcony Bar. The quartet chooses music for this series with an eye on tradition and an ear to the future. Expect familiar classical tunes mixed with a fair share of the group’s signature, cutting-edge repertoire. Exciting guest artists and longtime ETHEL collaborators will also make special appearances. Relax over cocktails and appetizers with a view of the Met’s majestic Great Hall as you enjoy surprising, vibrant music.

Ensemble-in-Residence: Denison University

ETHEL is currently the Ensemble-in-Residence at Denison University, coaching and mentoring students in the music department as well as engaging campus and community in cross-disciplinary projects and performances.

Quartet-in-Residence: Face the Music

In 2018-19, ETHEL will be the quartet-in-residence at Face the Music, a music education program at the Kaufman Music Center. This dynamic initiative for young New York City musicians is dedicated to the study and performance of music by living composers.

The Peabody Institute: Johns Hopkins University

ETHEL also will participate in the 2018-19 Levi Family Distinguished Visiting Artist Series at The Peabody Institute of Johns Hopkins University. ETHEL will provide workshop-demonstrations, performances, and masterclasses for conservatory students.
