Re-imagining the String Quartet: Calder Quartet Performs Honey Flyers at TEDxAmericasFinestCity

The Calder Quartet, called "superb" by the New York Times, continues to re-define and re-imagine the role of a string quartet in today's society. From performances of classical music at The Edinburgh International Festival and Carnegie Hall, to work with today's most esteemed living composers, to rock appearances on David Letterman and at The Hollywood Bowl, the Calder Quartet approaches all genres with respect and the desire to channel the true intent of the works creator. At TEDxAFC Andrew Bulbrook of the Calder Quartet speaks about re-imagining the centuries old string quartet through commissioning music and the quartet performs one of its favorite works commissioned for the ensemble, Honey Flyers by Christine Southworth. http://www.calderquartet.com"If you haven't seen them perform, do yourself a favor and figure out when they'll be playing in your home town. This is a quartet reaching far beyond classical and contemporary genres to include rock, pop and dance themes. In this respect, Honey Flyers was an ideal piece to highlight their talents." -- globalpatriot.com( Ben Jacobson, violin; Andrew Bulbrook, violin; Eric Byers, cello; Jonathan Moerschel, viola ).In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
