$30.00 - $60.00

Classical Cross-over with American Musical Styles Concert

Its name derived from creation mythology found in Native American Folklore,

the Turtle Island Quartet, since its inception in 1985, has been a singular force in the creation of bold, new trends in chamber music for cyruschestnut-1-outside-croppedstrings. Winner of the 2006 and 2008 GRAMMY® Awards for Best Classical Cross-over category, Turtle Island fuses the classical quartet esthetic with contemporary American musical styles – a reflection of some of the most creative music-making today.”

Turtle Island has taken a journey through forays into folk, bluegrass, swing, be-bop, funk, R&B, new age, rock, hip-hop, as well as music of Latin America and India. It has included over a dozen recordings on various labels,  soundtracks for major motion pictures, TV and radio credits such as the Today Show, and feature articles in People and Newsweek magazines.
