Voxare String Quartet meets the Man with a Movie Camera

September 17, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
West Kortright Centre, 49 West Kortright Church Road
East Meredith, NY

$11 - $15

This landmark project marries Dziga Vertov's 1929 silent masterpiece, The Man with a Movie Camera, with the Voxare Quartet's ingenuity, musical prowess, and aesthetic sensibilities to create an unforgettable and unique experience.

The members of the quartet, seated in darkness to one side of the stage, played with precision and passion”—The New York Times.
