Honors College House Concert Features the Rhizome String Quartet

The Honors College continues its "House Concert" series with a performance by the Rhizome String Quartet from 6-7 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 6. The performance will take place in the Honors Student Lounge (room 130) in the Honors College wing of Ozark Hall. 

Members of this faculty-led quartet have played together in various configurations for six years. Faculty performers include Er-Gene Kahng, first violin; Paulo Eskitch, viola; and David Gerstein, cello. Composer/performer Ryan Cockerham, on second violin, completes the line up. 

The eclectic program contrasts Beethoven's brooding String Quartet no. 4 in C minor, op. 18, to the String Quartet no. 2 by Jefferson Friedman, a 41-year-old composer who describes his string quartets as "abstract diary entries."

"When I play these pieces, I feel so much physicality in the music," Kahng said. "Both embody the spirit you feel when you're on the precipice of great change. They come from the same Western European classical tradition, but manifest almost opposing messages."

Light refreshments will be served. All on campus and in the community are welcome, but please RSVP as space is limited.
