IBIS – MUSIC for STRING QUARTET: Romeo and Juliet — Jan 11 @ 4pm

Sunday January 11 at 4 pm
Clarendon United Methodist Church
606 North Ivy Street, Arlington






IBIS continues to explore the intersections between music and literature
Our program for string quartet features the dramatic Beethoven Op. 18, No. 1 quartet, whose slow movement is said to portray the Tomb Scene from Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. Also on the program, a charming quartet by Haydn, and the String Quartet #3 by Shostakovich, a brooding, sardonic and powerful depiction of life in Stalinist Russia.

IBIS concerts are free to the public and are suitable for older kids. Your goodwill donations are welcome.
