The Lark Quartet is proud to celebrate its 30th Anniversary with an ambitious commissioning project, working with some of today's leading compositional voices, to add fice new works to the String Quartet repertoire.
The commissions include: John Harbison's 6th String Quartet and Stephen Hartke's 1st, a Quintet for String Quartet & Percussion by Kenji Bunch with guest Yousif Sheronick, a Clarinet Quintet by Anna Weesner with guest Todd Palmer and, as a very special treat, a String Octet by Andrew Waggoner which the quartet will perform with the original LARK members.
This year Lark takes part in #givingtuesday for the first time as it attempts to raise the neccesary funds for this ambitious project. They hope you will embrace the season of giving and become a contributor to this ground breaking project.
