Chamber Music Tulsa is proud to partner with Any Given Child Tulsa to bring chamber music to all 3,500 fourth graders in the Tulsa Public Schools System.
The goal of the Any Given Child Initiative, a program of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, is to assist communities in developing a plan for expanded arts education in their schools ensuring access and equity for all students in grades K-8. In 2010 The Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa, in partnership with The City of Tulsa, Tulsa Public Schools and The Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation, applied to participate in the initiative.
Harlem Quartet - November 7-14, 2019
New York-based HARLEM QUARTET, currently serving a three-year residency at London’s Royal College of Music, has been praised for its “panache” by The New York Times and hailed in the Cincinnati Enquirer for “bringing a new attitude to classical music, one that is fresh, bracing and intelligent.”
The quartet’s mission is to advance diversity in classical music, engaging young and new audiences through the discovery and presentation of varied repertoire that includes works by minority composers. Passion for this work has made the quartet a leading ensemble in both educational and community engagement activities.
Harlem Quartet was founded in 2006 by The Sphinx Organization, a national nonprofit dedicated to building diversity in classical music and providing access to music education in underserved communities. In 2013 the quartet completed its third and final year in the Professional String Quartet Training Program at New England Conservatory, under the tutelage of Paul Katz, Donald Weilerstein, Kim Kashkashian, Miriam Fried, and Martha Katz. The quartet is represented worldwide by Sciolino Artist Management, www.samnyc.us.
