NTH DEGREE, THE NEW FORCE IN CHAMBER MUSIC

Nth Degree is back for a third season with “The Revolutionaries” - a musical tribute to the world’s most revolutionary composers and the pieces they were inspired to write during tumultuous times. This season, the powerful musicians of Nth Degree will once again push the parameters of traditional chamber music. Witness Cape Symphony principal musicians – and many equally talented guest artists - paint a poignant picture of history through the eyes of the world’s musical historians.

 A new season with new guest artists and even some new locations. But some things still don’t change. Meet the performers – up close and personal – as they take classical music to the Nth Degree!

 

Join us on January 27 -28, 2017 for Nth Degree’s first concert of 2017 - The Quartets!

Ulysses QuartetFor this upcoming concert, Series Director and Cape Symphony Concertmaster Jae Cosmos Lee called upon his colleague Rhiannon Banerdt and her award-winning group, Ulysses Quartet, to present three quartets by Claude Debussy, Igor Stravinsky and Dmitri Shostakovich.
 
Violinist Rhiannon, Cape Symphony's Assistant Concertmaster, will be joined by her fellow quartet members: violinist Christina Bouey, Colin Brookes on viola and Grace Ho, cello.
 
The idea to focus on the Ulysses Quartet for an Nth Degree performance stemmed from the Quartet's grand prize win last year at the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition, the nation's largest chamber music competition and one of the most prestigious classical music prizes.

We want to remind you that the Friday, January 27th performance will be held at the John Wesley Methodist Church in Falmouth. The Chatham concert will be at the First Congregational Church on Saturday, January 28th.

ARTS PARTNER & PRESENTER
The arts are pivotal to a rich life. They're also essential to any education and are a vital part of Falmouth Academy's curriculum. Our teachers enhance student experiences in all subjects through artwork, knowing that the arts allow for hands-on lessons and fresh, innovative ways of viewing the world. The multi-sensory, aesthetic and intellectual opportunities the arts provide young people help them to refine and broaden their thinking. By partnering with organizations like Cape Symphony, bringing thousands of arts enthusiasts to our school, we celebrate the value of lifelong enjoyment of the arts. The vibrant, colorful programs presented by Nth Degree are a wonderful offering for the devoted arts patrons in our community, as well as those who are cultivating a love of music.
