Harlem Quartet

Newberry’s Memorial Park is the site for a May 2 performance of the New York-based Harlem Quartet. The quartet is a fast-rising, string quartet developing a unique music style that combines a traditional quartet canon with jazz, Latin, and contemporary music. The Harlem Quartet got its recording start with the release of a classical version of Take The A Train and has collaborated with classical pianists Michael Brown, Awadagin Pratt, Misha Dichter, and Fei-Fei, and jazz pianists Chick Corea and Aldo López-Gavilán.
