Described by one pretty important radio guy as “not classical...but not not classical”, bowed and fretted string quartet invoke continues to successfully dodge even the most valiant attempts at genre classification. The multi-instrumental band’s other not-nots encompass traditions from across America, including bluegrass, Appalachian fiddle tunes, jazz, and minimalism. invoke weaves all of these traditions together to create truly unique contemporary string quartet repertoire, written by and for the group. Invoke is currently the Young Professional String Quartet in Residence at the University of Texas at Austin.
This program will feature Mark O'Connor's String Quartet No. 2 "Bluegrass" as well as music by Ravel and original music by invoke.
Invoke's return to Beerthoven will also be a return to music by Peter Schickele with his Piano Quintet No. 1, joined by Beerthoven Founder and Director Daniel Swayze at the piano.
