The 2014 – 2015 Season, The Doris Duke Theatre at the Honolulu Museum of Art

Concert Change: Calder Quartet replaces Minetti

Friday, March 6, 2015, 7:30 PM


Calder Quartet

The Calder Quartet will replace the Minetti Quartet, which will not be able to fly to Hawaii for their Honolulu Chamber Music Series concert on Friday, March 6, at the Doris Duke Theatre.

The Calder Quartet has been called “outstanding” and “superb” by the New York Times. Many leading composers choose them to perform their works – including Christopher Rouse, Terry Riley and Thomas Adès. The group premiered a new work by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer David Lang with Los Angeles Master Chorale.

Inspired by innovative American artist Alexander Calder, they’ve performed at top halls and festivals across the globe including Wigmore Hall, Carnegie Hall, Washington Performing Arts Society, Walt Disney Concert Hall, and Hollywood Bowl.

Tickets are now on sale at the Honolulu Museum of Art front desk, and online here.

New York Polyphony

New York Polyphony

Please note the venue/date change

New York Polyphony is unique in today’s music world. The four-man vocal ensemble joins the most ancient music with the most cutting-edge: from unearthed music of the Renaissance to the Missa Charles Darwin (a mass based on the Origin of Species), from traditional Christmas carols to the winning entries from an online Gregorian chant remix competition. NYP’s four albums have been called “painfully beautiful,” and “as clear as a mountain lake, as balanced as Big Ben’s clockwork, and as seductive as a Top Chef tasting menu.”

*Venue/date change: Please note that this event will occur Sat, Mar 28 at 7:30pm in St. Andrew’s Cathedral. (229 Queen Emma Square, Honolulu, HI 96813)

**There will be no pre-concert interview for this concert

Tickets are available at the door from 6:30pm or through UH Outreach here. Seating will begin at 7:00pm.
