Described by the Chicago Tribune as “one of the smartest, most dynamic contemporary classical ensembles on the planet,” they have no shortage of accolades. Their impressive list of accomplishments include 4 Grammy Awards, a MacArthur Award for Creative and Effective Institutions, a Chamber Music America’s Inaugural Visionary Award, and Musical America’s Ensemble of the Year. They join us again in the Levin Performance Studio for an evening of innovative music.
