Dear friends from far and wide,
Greetings from East Lansing, Michigan!
The Momenta Quartet has been in residence at Michigan State University since Friday, performing as part of the university’s “Latin is America” Festival and working with student composers. Last night we performed on a lecture recital about the Mexican composer Julián Carrillo. It was also live streamed but we found out a bit too late to spread the word.
Luckily, tomorrow’s mixed program of contemporary Latin American composers is being live streamed, too! We hope you can join us:
