The Argus Quartet has quickly emerged as one of todays most dynamic and versatile young ensembles, winning First Prize at both the 2017 Concert Artists Guild Victor Elmaleh Competition, and the coveted 2017 M-Prize. The Argus has performed everywhere from Carnegie Hall and the Muziekgebouw aan t IJ in Amsterdam to the Hear Now Music Festival in Los Angeles and New Orleans Birdfoot Festival.
To celebrate the NY Landmark Conservancy's Sacred Spaces weekend, the Argus will offer an innovative program of music that draws inspiration from philosophical, divine, and ancient sources, including works by Josquin, Haydn, Mendelssohn, Theofanides and more.
About the Festival:
Founded in 1999, the Cooperstown Summer Music Festival has been bringing world-class chamber music performances to the Cooperstown area for 20 years. The festival has featured performances by the Tokyo String Quartet, the American String Quartet, the St. Lawrence String Quartet, Kurt Elling, Tim Fain, Bill Charlap, Hilary Kole, Simone Dinnerstein, Mark OConnor, the Sonia Olla Flamenco Dance Company, and many more.
Celebrated graphic artist Milton Glaser (best known for the I Heart NY campaign) has created a series of 17 posters for the Festival featuring violins and cows, a nod to Cooperstown's rural character. Performance Today host Fred Child has said, Not only do they do interesting concerts, they have great posters.
The Cooperstown Summer Music Festival is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
