The American Quartet and the Ariel Quartet from Israel
The American Quartet and the Ariel Quartet Perform Mendelssohn
The Candlelight Concert Society welcomes the American String Quartet and the Ariel String Quartet, coming together to perform the great Mendelssohn Octet. The American String Quartet was formed more than 35 years ago when its original members were students at The Juilliard School. Today the quartet is internationally recognized as one of the world's foremost string ensembles. The Ariel String Quartet, originally from Israel, performs with the intensity and passion of a young ensemble, and the conviction and cohesiveness of veterans. The American Record Guide
describes the Ariel as "a consummate ensemble gifted with utter musicality and remarkable interpretive power." The American Quartet will lead off with Mozart's Quartet No. 17 in B-flat Major, K. 458, Hunt
; and Joan Tower's Quartet No. 1, Night Fields
. Then the two ensembles join to present Mendelssohn's Octet in E-flat Major, Op. 20.

Entire symphonies would struggle to replicate a sound as lush and lyrical as that of Margot MacDonald's "one-man band." A master of live looping, MacDonald uses the loop pedal to layer her gorgeous voice into compositions that shimmer and surprise. The current Washington Area Music Association "Artist of the Year," the 22-year-old MacDonald was recently included in NPR's "Favorite Discoveries" from the CMJ Music Festival. Today, her fourth studio album, Canvas, is quickly gaining critical acclaim while her YouTube videos, such as her epic cover of Massive Attack's "Teardrop," are racking up thousands of views. But nothing replicates the full power of seeing her live at Montpelier Arts Center. Learn More
