The robust, young Fry Street Quartet was a triumph of ensemble playing" The New York Times
The Crossroads Project fuses art and science to examine the Earth's changing climate. At the core of the project is a multi-media concert featuring the Fry Street Quartet performing a newly commissioned work by Laura Kaminsky, as well as works by Haydn and Janacek, interwoven with live commentary by physicist Dr. Robert Davies to explore mankind's impact on the climate and how society might respond.
Coinciding with the concert, an exhibition of Rebecca Allan's paintings featured in the concert will be shown in the Hudson Opera House's Center Hall Gallery from February 15March 15, 2014.
The Crossroads performance combines compelling research and vivid imagery to examine humanity's predicament and then unleashes powerful music in an effort to take the audience on a journey from intellectual understanding to visceral experience and finally to personal resolve.
