Special Event — Turtle Island Quartet

  • Foundry Vineyards 1111 Abadie Street Walla Walla, WA, 99362 United States (map)

The gallery at Foundry Vineyards will provide the stage for one of the highlights of Walla Walla’s cultural calendar as WWCMF welcomes special guests, Turtle Island Quartet. Known around the world for their groundbreaking explorations in a multitude of genres, Turtle Island Quartet is at its heart the most natural extension of the string quartet of Haydn’s day. Each member of the quartet is an accomplished improvisor, composer and arranger, skills that once formed the backbone of classical music training.

Perhaps you have been a fan of Turtle Island Quartet for years. Perhaps you are encountering them for the first time. In either case, you are in for a night of funky grooves, seductive harmonies and an all around good time. Enjoy!

Artists: David Balakrishnan, violin; Benjamin von Gutzeit, viola; Alex Hargreaves, and Malcolm Parson, cello.
