Cellist and PYSO alum, Josh Gindele is a member of the Miró Quartet, an award winning string quartet which has performed all over the world. Founded in 1995, the quartet honors the legacy of the string quartet while finding innovative ways to use chamber music to connect with diverse audiences.
In March, quartet members Joshua Gindele and John Largess interviewed with WQED to discuss their recently released 8-CD box set, “Beethoven Complete String Quartets”. You can find details on this interview in our previous blog post. The Miró Quartet recently announced a new project they are putting on this summer, in place of their usual summer performance schedule. Gindele writes,
“In times of global uncertainty and personal upheaval music can be one of the most powerful means to unite us all, to bring us together, to give us inspiration to live differently and comfort us in our struggles.
The Miró Quartet will come together in-person to perform all sixteen Beethoven String Quartets (including the Große Fuge) live for online audiences presented by the Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival via the streaming platform OurConcerts.live”
Scheduled from July 16th to August 8th, this 12-evening concert series will take place on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 5:30PM PDT (8:30pm EDT). Each livestream will remain online for 24 hours for ticket holders. The video feed will be professionally produced, from a private performance space in Austin, TX and feature high-quality sound.
