The Troy Arts Council is pleased to welcome 2013 Grammy Award Winner Harlem String Quartet to the Claudia Crosby Theatre in Troy Alabama.
The HARLEM QUARTET, praised for its “panache” by The New York Times, is currently the resident ensemble in the New England Conservatory of Music’s Professional String Quartet Program. Its mission is to advance diversity in classical music while engaging young and new audiences through the discovery and presentation of varied repertoire, highlighting works by minority composers.
The Harlem Quartet is composed of first-place laureates of the Sphinx Competition for Black and Latino string players. They were formed in 2006. The members are firstviolinist Ilmar Gavilan, second violinist Melissa White, violist Juan-Miguel Hernandez, and cellist Paul Wiancko. The Quartet won Best Instrumental Composition at the 2013 Grammy Awards for Mozart Goes Dancing.
