Harrison House Music & Arts will present The Del Sol String Quartet in concert on Friday, March 1st at 8:00 pm performing two major works by 20th Century composers Ben Johnston and Lou Harrison (for whom Harrison House Music & Arts is named).

The San Francisco based Del Sol String Quartet is a two-time winner of the top Chamber Music America/ASCAP Award for Adventurous Programming. They are breaking the boundaries of classical music in riveting performances of new music with a global pulse.

Critically acclaimed as “steeped in bravery and imagination,” this high energy quartet of master musicians (violinists Kate Stenberg and Rick Shinozaki, violist Charlton Lee and cellist Kathryn Bates Williams) recently celebrated their 20th anniversary. For more about the quartet visit www.delsolquartet.com.

Harrison House Music & Arts is an artist residency, performance and community arts program based in the straw bale retreat built by the late composer, Lou Harrison on the edge of Joshua Tree National Park. HHM&A invites gifted artists into this historic and remarkable acoustic environment to share their art with audiences in an intimate setting.
