Voices Up! Presents: SEVEN)Suns String Quartet
December 1, 2016, 7:30 PM Admission Free Fordham University Lincoln Center 12th Floor Lounge
SEVEN)SUNS is the first classical/metal/hardcore string quartet. Its repertoire is drawn from works by the members of the group, reimagined string quartet versions of metal and hardcore songs, and music from the Western art music tradition. SEVEN)SUNS has played The Gallery at Le Poisson Rouge, The Cell Theater, Firehouse Space, Shapeshifter Lab, and The Knitting Factory. They held a residency at the Avaloch Farm Music Institute in New Hampshire last summer and will return there in summer 2017. They are the recipients of a generous grant from the Brooklyn Arts Council to write and perform a piece tentatively entitled "Songs of the Voiceless" based on their visits to Rikers Island Correctional Facility in New York City.
