For the closing night of The String Orchestra of Brooklyn’s String Theories Festival, the Argus String Quartet presents an evening of old and new works for string quartet. The Argus String Quartet is featured on The String Orchestra of Brooklyn’s inaugural album, AfterImage, to be released June 21, 2017.
The Argus String Quartet is dedicated to reinvigorating the audience-performer relationship through innovative concerts and diverse repertoire – connecting with and building up a community of engaged listeners is at the core of the quartet’s mission. The quartet also believes that today’s ensembles can honor the storied chamber music traditions of our past while forging a new path forward. In that spirit, their repertoire includes not just staples of the chamber music canon but also a large number of pieces by living composers.
Founded in 2007, The String Orchestra of Brooklyn has become an integral part of New York City’s vibrant and diverse musical landscape, bringing together creative instrumentalists, composers, and like-minded organizations and ensembles to collaborate on adventurous musical projects and present them to the public at an affordable price.
