6th Season of the Richard P. Garmany Chamber Music Series Announced

The Hartt School is proud to announce that its popular and widely hailed Richard P. Garmany Chamber Music Series is returning for a sixth season.

The four-concert series, which has been bringing to campus many of the most admired and innovative musical artists and ensembles in the world, is supported by the Richard P. Garmany Fund at the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving. For the upcoming 2014–15 season, the fund has provided a grant of $55,000, the largest since the series began in 2008.

The artist roster for the 201415 season includes:
– Oct. 16, 2014: JACK Quartet — One of the most dynamic and trailblazing string quartets of our time, this youthful New York-based foursome has been called “mind-blowing” and “electrifying” by the New York Times.
Nov. 20, 2014: Calder Quartet, the widely honored, globe-circling L.A.-based ensemble that just weeks ago won the Avery Fisher Career Grant, one of the highest honors in the classical music world.
– Feb. 5, 2015: Roomful of Teeth, the dazzling nine-person mixed vocal ensemble that caused a sensation earlier this year by winning the Grammy Award for Best Small Ensemble Performance.
April 23, 2015: International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE), the groundbreaking artist-directed modular collective of young musicians devoted to performing the music of all periods, with an emphasis on works by living composers.
