Collins Center for the Arts Presents the Miró Quartet

Sunday, March 29 at 3:00 pm
Minsky Recital Hall
University of Maine
Orono

Maine Public is a media sponsor of The Collins Center for the Arts' Chamber Music Series, including the Miró Quartet, in concert at Minsky Recital Hall on Sunday afternoon, March 29. Formed in 1995, the Miró Quartet took its name and its inspiration from the Spanish artist Joan Miró, whose Surrealist works — with subject matter drawn from the realm of memory, dreams, and imaginative fantasy — are some of the most groundbreaking, influential, and admired of the 20th century.

In addition to concertizing, the members of the duo share a love for teaching which brings them to major conservatories in the world for master classes and to judge competitions. Since 2011 they have been Artists-in-residence for the San Francisco Performances. This four-year residency program brings them to the Bay Area every year for community outreach, performances, and master classes in public schools as well as for the San Francisco Conservatory.
