Mivos Quartet

Tuesday, June 7, 2016, 6pm

Miller Theatre at Columbia University

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.

Composer and soprano Kate Soper joins the audience favorite Mivos Quartet to close the 2015-16 season at Miller Theatre. Soper’s Nadja pairs string quartet with the words of Tennyson, Ovid, and Breton “sung with absolute authenticity by Ms. Soper” (New York Times). Violist Victor Lowrie’s arrangement of the 17th century Madre la de los primores brings the Mexican villancico into the 21st century. Mivos Quartet will also premiere a new work by Columbia University alum Carl Bettendorf entitled String Quartet No. 2, Yggdrasil

All Pop-Up Concerts start at 6 p.m. Admission is on a first-come, first-served basis, and doors open at 5:30 p.m.
