Grants are available to organizations that actively support young performing artists. More than one project within the organization may qualify for a grant request. However, only one grant award will be allocated per organization per year from the Performing Arts League. Applications can be downloaded at http://www.palchattanooga.org/scholarships--grants.html
This event is part of the grant the Performing Arts League awarded to support the String Theory Youth Initiative. In addition to the concert, the Quartet will be visiting a number of area schools.
The Decoda Cello Quartet
Saturday, January 21, 2017, 1pm
Hunter Museum of American Art
Join String Theory and the Hunter Museum for a special family concert featuring Four Crayons, a show that asks the question, how does the sound of the cello help to create a musical picture? The Decoda Cello Quartet will show how much versatility of sound is possible when drawing from four of the same instrument. By exploring the tools composers use and the choices they make, we hear how four cellos can create a number of vivid musical settings, and beyond. This concert will be followed by an instrument petting zoo hosted by the String Theory Youth Initiative!
Regular museum admission. No advance tickets. ($15 adults; children 17 and under FREE; FREE to Hunter members and String Theory subscribers and patrons)
