Under the Influence: Miró Quartet

Part of

The Baker-Baum Concert Hall

SummerFest welcomes back the fan-favorite Miró Quartet. For more than 25 years, the Miró Quartet has balanced a loyalty to the legacy of the string quartet and a devotion to the future of the form, regularly commissioning new works and collaborating with the finest artists of our time. For this special Wednesday evening event at The Conrad, the Miró partners with the sensational GRAMMY-winning composer and performer Caroline Shaw, presenting the West Coast première of Microfictions, a new work co-commissioned by La Jolla Music Society for SummerFest, as well as performing Mendelssohn’s energetic and dramatic String Quintet No. 2 with Shaw on viola.
