Music Of The Sun Lights Up Carver Center Friday

For over 15 years, Ethelhas been on the edge of chamber music - performing with rockers, on soundtracks, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and in the Grand Canyon.  

Friday evening is a chance to hear the string quartet live and in person, along with Native American flutist Robert Mirabal.

"It's beautiful stuff," quips Dorothy Lawson, artistic director and cellist of Ethel. "There's a profound sense of sinking into an altered space when we perform this program."

That program, Music of the Sun, is a blend of western classical music, jazz, Brazilian, and Native American music.

"I think the program has a very understandable flow," Dorothy says. "It is something the audience can immerse itself in and feel both the exhilaration of various kinds of music and the rest and restorative qualities of music."

  • Hear Ethel and Robert Mirabal Friday night at 8 p.m. at the Carver Cultural Center. There is more online at: www.thecarver.org
