LiveARTS: January 30, 2022 concert features 2 works by American composer Jesse Montgomery

On January 30, 2022, LiveARTS in Franklin, MA, is excited to be presenting two works by American composer Jesse Montgomery!

Jessie Montgomery is an acclaimed composer, violinist, and educator. She is the recipient of the Leonard Bernstein Award from the ASCAP Foundation, and her works are performed frequently around the world by leading musicians and ensembles. Her music interweaves classical music with elements of vernacular music, improvisation, language, and social justice, placing her squarely as one of the most relevant interpreters of 21st-century American sound and experience. Her profoundly felt works have been described as “turbulent, wildly colorful and exploding with life” (The Washington Post).

She writes, ““Music is my connection to the world. It guides me to understand my place in relation to others and challenges me to make clear the things I do not understand. I imagine that music is a meeting place at which all people can converse about their unique differences and common stories.”

Come hear the LiveARTS String Quartet perform her unique and compelling works “Strum” (2006) and “Source Code” (2013). 

Also on the program are two of the great string quartets of Felix Mendelssohn and Ludwig van Beethoven.

LiveARTS announces return to in person events for Winter/Spring 2022

LiveARTS is pleased to announce its return to in-person events with three dynamic concerts during winter/spring 2022! 

We kick off our Winter/Spring 2022 series on January 30 with the return of our string quartet-in-residence, the LiveArts String Quartet, featuring violinists Gregory Vitale, Katherine Winterstein, violist (and LiveArts Board member) Donald Krishnaswami, and cellist Jan Müller-Szeraws.
Then, on March 13, we continue our series with the return of international concert pianist Michael Lewin. Mr. Lewin was scheduled to perform in-person in April, 2020, and very kindly and with great versatility moved over to the Zoom platform to share his artistry with us. We are pleased to be able to welcome him back to play for us again -- this time in person!

Finally, in a special FUNDRAISER CONCERT on April 10, our audiences will be treated to the artistry of violinist Nicholas Kitchen and cellist Yeesun Kim, both members of the famed Borromeo String Quartet. They will be joined by pianist (and LiveARTS Board member) Ann Sears. The ensemble will perform an all-Beethoven program. (This fundraiser concert was previously scheduled as a Zoom event for April, 2021, but was rescheduled to 2022 so we could present these remarkable musicians in person.)
We look forward to seeing you at these IN-PERSON events! Click here for more information and to buy a season subscription or individual tickets 

We look forward to greeting you in Franklin, MA!
