"The River resides somewhere beyond the intersection of ceremony and show biz, at a place where multicultural collaboration becomes sacred art."
Seattle Times

One of America's most adventurous string quartets, ETHEL features Ralph Farris on viola, Kip Jones and Corin Lee on violin, and Dorothy Lawson on cello. The group formed in New York City in 1998, and are heirs to the likes of the Kronos Quartet. At Wesleyan, they join forces with GRAMMY Award-winning Taos Pueblo flutist and Native American instrument maker Robert Mirabal to present The River (2016), an evening of music inspired by water and its essential role in life on Earth.

ETHEL and Robert Mirabal will discuss their collaboration, the making of The River, and play selections during a free lecture/demonstration on Thursday, October 25, 2018 at 4:30pm in Adzenyah Rehearsal Hall 003 (Daltry Room), 60 Wyllys Avenue, Middletown.

Made possible with support from The Robert F. Schumann Institute of the College of the Environment.
