MIAC Live: Turtle Island Quartet

Thursday, March 15, 2018 - 7:30pm
Walker Recital Hall

The Mercyhurst Institute for Arts & Culture (MIAC) Live Series continues with a performance by the Turtle Island Quartet titled “Bird’s Eye View: The Legend of Charlie Parker.” It’s scheduled for Thursday, March 15, at 7:30 p.m. in the Walker Recital Hall at Mercyhurst. As the two-time Grammy-winning quartet pays homage to jazz saxophonist Charlie Parker, iconic Parker classics such as "Ornithology," "KoKo" and "Dewey Square" are juxtaposed with original responses by quartet members. Its name derived from creation mythology found in Native American folklore, Turtle Island Quartet has been a singular force in the creation of bold, new trends in chamber music for strings since its inception in 1985. Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for seniors, and $10 for students/youth. Visit or call the box office at 814-824-3000 for tickets.
