Formed by four talented musicians devoted to educating as well as performing, the Iris Quartet has presented concerts in some of New York's finest venues since 2007. Named after the Greek goddess of the rainbow, the Quartet brings to its performances a colorful blend of four diverse personalities and backgrounds.
In addition to performing, each member is involved in teaching their respective instrument, and also in teaching music appreciation to audiences new to classical music. While each has trained at New York's most renowned music schools, formative studies in Albania, China, Japan, and the United States also inform their musical interpretations.
Iris is excited to be performing in this award-winning theater that is an integral part of the heart of the East Village theater scene. Metropolitan Playhouse is eager to present the Iris String Quartet in this concert of classical chamber music in its intimate downtown home. Known for exploring American identity through our literary and historical past, the Metropolitan's recent successes include: Icebound, Within the Law, The Hero, Self and A Man's World. Past productions include Both Your Houses, The House of Mirth, The Jazz Singer, Uncle Tom's Cabin, Dodsworth, The Return of Peter Grimm, Under the Gaslight, The Contrast, Denial, The Octoroon, The Melting Pot, and Inheritors, as well as the popular East Village Theater festivals.
