The Alexander String Quartet Visiting Ensemble in Residence at Baruch College
Baruch College is proud to host The Alexander String Quartet for a one-week residency each semester. In addition to performing a concert in Engelman Recital Hall, the quartet also appears in classes from a variety of disciplines to explore relationships between their music and other forms of intellectual endeavor. They might appear in art or literature classes, for example, to examine the notion of artistic 'style' and its historical contexts. Or they might discuss the science of musical rhythm in a math class, the group dynamics of the string quartet in a psychology class, or the dramatic aspects of musical performance in a theatre class. All this in addition, of course, to providing an invaluable opportunity for music students to witness the art of musical performance first-hand, and to pick the brains of world-renowned musicians on everything from musical creation and structure to the ups and downs of the music business.
