A Caroline Shaw Portrait
Featuring Anne Lanzilotti, Sara Sitzer, and special guests Chicago Q Ensemble and Jacob Harpster

The Frequency Series presents "A Caroline Shaw Portrait" with performances by Brooklyn based violist Anne Lanzilotti, cellist Sara Sitzer, and special guests Chicago Q Ensemble and percussionist Jacob Harpster. The evening highlights the string works of Pulitzer Prize winning composer Caroline Shaw, including a collaborative set of intimate solo and duo performances by Lanzilotti, Sitzer, and Harpster, as well as Shaw’s string quartets, arranged here for two violas to be performed by Lanzilotti and Chicago Q Ensemble, a configuration that will bring out the warm sonority of the composer’s intuitive string writing.
