BRAM GOLDSMITH THEATER THE WALLIS PRESENTS
ANTHONY MCGILL & THE PACIFICA QUARTETMusic
Recognized for its virtuosity, exuberance, and daring repertory choices, the Grammy Award-winning Pacifica Quartet — Simin Ganatra (violin), Austin Hartman (violin), Mark Holloway (viola), Brandon Vamos (cello) — has achieved international recognition as one of the finest chamber ensembles performing today. Formed in 1994, the ensemble quickly won chamber music’s top competitions, including the 1998 Naumburg Chamber Music Award. For its Wallis debut, the quartet is joined by the brilliantly multi-faceted Anthony McGill, principal clarinet of the New York Philharmonic, an exceptional soloist in his own right. These spectacular musicians will bring the beauty and depth of chamber music to their Wallis debut.
