Aeolus Quartet: Painting Sound

"Painting Sound" takes inspiration from the work of legendary DC painter and long time Corcoran faculty member Gene Davis, exploring the painter's understanding of rhythm articulated through space and color. The program pairs Nancarrow’s Quartet no.1, Schubert's iconic Death and the Maiden, and mythology inspired Alcyone (by GW’s Professor Douglas Boyce) with conversations around images of Davis' work from the Legacy Corcoran Collection. In addition, the concert will feature works composed by students at the Duke Ellington School of the Arts in conjunction with the Aeolus Quartet.

The concert is free and open to the public.

“Painting Sound” is the culminating concert of the Aeolus Quartet's 2015-2016 residency at Duke Ellington School of the Arts, jointly funded by Chamber Music America and George Washington University.

The George Washington University Department of Music prides itself in providing its students with a diverse and well-rounded musical education in both academic programs and campus life. This residency partnership extends the GW Music Department’s continued commitment to high school students from the DC community making informed expression in creating or performing music
