MGS presents KAIA String Quartet
November 9 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm$15 – $30
For our November concert, we feature the string family with an all female string quartet based in Chicago.
Celebrated for its ability to “beautifully blur the lines between, classical, Latin and world music” the Chicago-based KAIA String Quartet is an ensemble devoted to exposing audiences to the rich and colorful music of Latin America. KAIA recently completed their residency with WFMT, Chicago’s classical radio station where they performed, curated, and exposed audiences to new ways of thinking about Latin American music. They have collaborated with Grammy winner Raúl Jaurena, the National Chamber Music Ensemble of Uruguay, Chicago’s Tangata ensemble, Chicago Summer Dance Festival and Grammy Award winning musician and composer Paquito D’Rivera.
***Please note this concert is on a Saturday***
This is a very special concert event, our annual Music for a Great Cause concert, this year benefitting the Arc of Greensboro. Each season, MGS chooses a local non-profit working in the Health and Human Services sector to collaborate with for this special event. This year, MGS has chosen the Arc of Greensboro because of the important work they do supporting people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families, promoting and protecting their human rights and actively supporting their full inclusion and participation in the community throughout their lifetimes.
MGS will provide a special education event for Arc members and their families as part of our commitment to music education for everyone in our community. In addition, MGS will donate 50% of all concert proceeds to the Arc to support the essential work they are doing in Greensboro.
This concert is sponsored in part by Lincoln Financial Foundation and the Ingram Memorial Fund.
