That's a wrap for @scragmountainmusic week! Scrag week = diving deep into some incredible music. This time it was @premoevan 's String Quartet No.1 and Schoenberg's haunting/gorgeous String Quartet No. 2 with soprano Mary Bonhag. Thank you Mary, Evan, Lara and the Friends of Scrag for inviting us into your community, and allowing the space to explore the beautiful depths of these two pieces!
A little musical break from voting night. We're here at @scragmountainmusic to premiere bassist/composer Evan Premo's string quartet "Deeply Known." World premiere on Thursday at @breadandbutterfarm! We absolutely love this gorgeous piece!!!
We're fast approaching Thanksgiving, and the @concert_artists_guild family would like to take this month to share all the things we are grateful for.

"This review could be very short:
Aizuri Quartet’s debut album Blueprinting is brilliant.
Purchase it now and listen to it often.
It really is just that simple." -Brianna Matzke, I Care If You Listen
