Breakthrough Film Premiere:
A full house came out to celebrate the Breakthrough film premiere and lecture-recital at the Seattle Art Museum. Quinton wrote, produced, and made his acting debut in this short film honoring the life and music of the virtuoso violinist and composer Chevalier de Saint-Georges, a musician of African origin who against all odds rose to become one of the most prolific figures of the 18th century.

Chevalier de Saint-Georges was born on Christmas day 270 years ago—and in honor of this very special birthday, the Quinton Morris Project has a very special gift up its sleeve. We’ll be dropping clues on social media. Follow us!
