String Quartet to Perform in Lecture-Concert Series

JONESBORO – The Rhythm Method string quartet will perform in Arkansas State University’s 2018-19 Lecture-Concert Series, Tuesday, March 26.

The concert will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the Recital Hall of the Fine Arts Center (GPS 2412 Quapaw Way).  Admission is free.

Members of the group will also work with A-State music students during a residency March 25-27.

The Rhythm Method strives to reimagine the string quartet in a contemporary, feminist context.  The four performer-composers of The Rhythm Method continually expand their sonic and expressive palette through the use of graphic notation, vocalization, improvisation and performance.

“The Rhythm Method is one of the most forward-looking string quartets in the world. Their music represents more fully a consilience of numerous disciplines which makes the group perfect for interdisciplinary studies, according to Dr. Tim Crist, chair of the Lecture-Concert Series.  “Because of this unique quality, the quartet will be working with Nettleton STEAM faculty and students in designing musical works that have as their primary impulse aspects of science, math, physics, architecture, history, as well as other extramusical concepts, in an effort to find intersections that build deeper learning. This will make for a wonderful educational experience for our community students, and something unlike anything they have ever experienced.”

The group recently completed residencies at the Zurich University for Art and Music, and Bowling Green State University’s College of Musical Arts.  They have performed internationally in France, Austria and Switzerland.

This season marks the official kickoff of the quartet’s Hidden Mothers Project, an initiative highlighting works by historical women composers. It will also bring the second installment of Broad Statements, a celebration of creative music-making by women in a wide array of artistic styles.

This concert and residency are presented with additional funding support from College of Liberal Arts and Communication, Department of Music, and A-State Music Outreach Program.

The Lecture-Concert Series serves Arkansas State and the surrounding communities by bringing notable guest speakers and performers of diverse backgrounds and wide appeal to the campus.
