CARNEGIE HALL PRESENTS

Carnegie Hall Citywide: Harlem Quartet

Friday, August 2, 2019 6 PM Bryant Park
URL Copied
Harlem Quartet by Amy Schroeder
Stunning virtuosity and a passionate dedication to advancing diversity in classical music make the Harlem Quartet one of the most exciting ensembles of our day. The ensemble has been praised by The Cincinnati Enquirer for “bringing a new attitude to classical music” and by The New York Times for its “panache.” The quartet was founded in 2006 by the Sphinx Organization, a national nonprofit dedicated to transforming lives through the power of diversity in the arts. After the Harlem Quartet inspires you, experience another great ensemble—the Sphinx Virtuosi—on Friday, October 11 at Carnegie Hall, as they explore works by minority composers.
