UUCWI presents 'Quartets: Then & Now’
UUCWI will present “Quartets: Then & Now,” a dramatic musical juxtaposition of the old and the new, at 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 4.
Two quartets combining the talents of six professional musicians from Seattle will perform. The Seattle Freelance Classical Quartet will play Beethoven’s “String Quartet, Opus 59 No. 1,” and a modern quartet calling itself Stop, Thief! will play original compositions considered a fusion of jazz-rock-blues-funk. There will be crossovers and overlaps between the two groups in terms of both the performers and the music.
The Seattle Freelance Classical Quartet features Teo Benson (violin), Dylan Rieck (cello), Thane Lewis (viola) and Miodrag Veselinovic (violin).
Stop, Thief! is Dylan Rieck (cello), Teo Benson (violin), Bren Plummer (double bass) and Joseph Schulz (drums).
Tickets are $15 and are available at Book Bay in Freeland and Moonraker Books in Langley.
UUCWI is located two miles north of Freeland at 2103 Highway 525.
