New York City-based string quartet to perform for Fine Arts Series


Momenta Quartet will perform in Rammelkamp Chapel on Sunday, March 26, at 3 p.m.

Momenta: the plural of momentum. This is the idea behind Momenta Quartet, four individuals who are in motion towards a common goal. The ensemble’s eclectic vision encompasses contemporary music of all aesthetic backgrounds alongside great music from the recent and distant past.

This New York City-based string quartet has collaborated with more than 250 living composers and was praised by the New York Times for its “diligence, curiosity and excellence.” Momenta’s educational-performing circuit includes Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Harvard, Hawaii, Michigan State, New York, and Washington Universities. This will be the ensemble’s first Illinois College Fine Arts Series performance.

Individual tickets for the Illinois College Fine Arts Series are $15 each. Students of all ages receive free admission. Tickets are available for purchase in advance by phone at 217.245.3192 or at the door on event day.
