The FIFTH FLOOR COLLECTIVE presents: The Friction Quartet

Tickets: Free!
Tickets available at the door only

The Boston based FIFTH FLOOR COLLECTIVE presents their first transcontinental concert with the Bay Area’s renowned Friction Quartet. Praised for their “broad expressive range” (Luciano Chessa) and “energetic gusto” (SF Examiner), Friction Quartet is the San Francisco Bay Area’s most explosive contemporary string quartet. Through artistic collaboration in varied mediums, the commissioning of new works, crossing into genres outside of classical music, and incorporating mixed media technology, Friction creates an exhilarating and inviting atmosphere that will attract audiences of all ages and interests. The Fifth Floor Collective produces concerts featuring works by its founders and their contemporaries. Appreciating the past and looking toward the future, these four young composers seek to bridge the divide between old and new audiences by offering music that is fresh, expressive, and relevant. They strive to bring the world of contemporary classical music to its appropriate audience: everyone. The concert will feature works by Joseph M. Colombo, Patrick Greene, Andrew Paul Jackson and more. Concert is FREE.
