Hailed by the New York Times at their Carnegie Hall debut as “invariably energetic and finely burnished…playing with earthly vigor,” Catalyst Quartet is comprised of top Laureates and alumni of the internationally acclaimed Sphinx Competition. Known for “rhythmic energy, polyphonic clarity and tight ensemble-playing,” the ensemble has toured throughout the US and abroad, including sold-out performances at the Kennedy Center, Chicago’s Harris Theater, Miami’s New World Center. The quartet has also appeared with the Bogata Filharmonic, the Sphinx Virtuosi, and the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra.
These interactive concerts, long a Maverick tradition, are designed for enjoyment by children in grades K-6. Admission is free for all young people under 16. Adults pay $5 each at the door.
Freedom and Joy: Duke Ellington, Joseph Haydn, and Voices of Color in American Music is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
You do not need to show proof of vaccination or a negative test result to enter the Maverick grounds or Hall for this event. Face masks are optional but recommended inside the Hall.
