This event has ended.

Bring a friend, grab a drink, and join some of today’s most interesting performers onstage at Miller Theatre on select Tuesday evenings.


Catalyst Quartet makes their Miller debut with a program that features a work by their own violinist Jessie Montgomery—a student of Joan Tower—alongside works by Tower, Phillip Glass and jazz great Paquito D’Rivera. Catalyst is comprised of top winners and alumni of the renowned Sphinx Competition, an annual competition designed to identify and champion outstanding young string players in the Black and Latino communities.

Admission is on a first-come, first-served basis, and doors open at 5:30 p.m.
