The Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts, Los Angeles, will host the Harlem Quartet show, “Game-Changers”.
Harlem Quartet is a string quartet that was formed in 2006. A string quartet is a musical ensemble of four members wherein two members play violin, one is a viola player and the fourth one is a cellist.
Harlem Quartet comprises first violinist Ilmar Gavilán, second violinist Melissa White, violist Jaime Amador, and cellist Felix Umansky. The group had won their first ever Grammy in 2013 in the Best Instrumental Composition category for Mozart Goes Dancing.
Their show at The Wallis will be about game-changing works from the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. The performance will include a work by Ilmar Gavilan’s father Guido Gavilan.
Harlem Quartet's musical journey began at Carnegie Hall in 2006. The occasion was the Sphinx Organization's 10th anniversary gala concert.
