Mivos Quartet

Tuesday, June 13, 2017, 6pm

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 evenings.

With this diverse program of complex works, the Mivos Quartet lives up to its reputation as “a fearless, precise, and forward-looking new music group” (Chicago Reader). Miller welcomes back the boundary-pushing ensemble to close the 2016-17 season, with a concert featuring music by three diverse compositional voices, highlighted by the U.S. premiere of a new quartet by George Lewis.

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


  • George Lewis String Quartet 2.5, “Playing with Seeds” (2017) U.S. premiere
  • Cenk Ergün Use (2009) world premiere version for string quartet
  • Brian Ferneyhough String Quartet No. 2 (1980)
