The Linfield College Department of Music will feature string quartet Mousai Remix in a “Meet the Musicians” performance seminar Thursday, April 25, at 4 p.m. in the Delkin Recital Hall in the Vivian A. Bull Music Center at Linfield.
The session will include discussion with the quartet followed by an opportunity for the Linfield student string quartet to play for and with the guest artists. During the session, Mousai Remix will also perform a selection from their repertoire. The group’s 2012-13 season showcases the works of Debussy, Ravel and Prokofiev paired with the complete quartets of Mendelssohn.
Mousai Remix is comprised of Oregon Symphony members Emily Cole, Shin-young Kwon, Jennifer Arnold and Marilyn de Oliveira. The group formed in 2011 after the quartet performed for a Parties of Note fundraising concert hosted by the Friends of the Oregon Symphony. The quartet seeks to provide Portland-area audiences with a personal connection to symphony musicians, often performing in nontraditional venues that facilitate casual listening but still allow for a powerful connection to the music.
The music performance seminar is free and open to the public. For more information, call the Linfield Department of Music at 503-883-2275.
