The Young Eight Concert in Columbia City
Seattle, WA The Young Eight string octet will perform a classical music concert at the Rainier Valley Cultural Center in Columbia City, 3515 S. Alaska St. on Thursday, June 23, 2005 at 7:30 p.m. Their repertoire will include excerpts from their upcoming Benaroya concert, including string octets by Mendelsshon, Shostakovich and Niels W. Gade. The concert will also include the "Psalms" by Patrice Rushen, and Lyric for Strings by George Walker.

The Young Eight is an outstanding string octet of African American musicians from several commended graduate & doctorate music programs throughout the country.  Formed in 2002 by director and Seattle native Quinton I. Morris, the critically acclaimed octet is dedicated to exposing various communities to the arts through classical music.  The concert at Rainier Valley Cultural Center (RVCC) in Columbia City complements this mission during the Seattle visit, which also includes a concert at Benaroya Hall on Saturday, June 25.
