Attacca Quartet & American Repertory Ballet

An Evening of Contemporary Ballet
Performance Pavilion - Morven Museum & Garden
$15 - $100; Youth 5-17 half-price

Grammy Award-winning Attacca Quartet has the dexterity to glide between the music of the 18th through to 21st century living composers' repertoire that has placed them as one of the most versatile and outstanding ensembles of the moment – a quartet for modern times. Magic occurs when this top ensemble performs with dancers from the American Repertory Ballet, the beauty of two art forms performing together as a seamless whole.

“We’re living in a golden age of string quartets...It’s hard to disagree when you hear the vibrant young players in New York’s Attacca Quartet.” — NPR


This evening of music and dance is made possible in part through the generosity of Sue Howard.

Morven Museum & Garden has extended their hours to 6:45pm before this performance! Be sure to stop in to view Morven's current exhibit "Striking Beauty: New Jersey Tall Case Clocks, 1730–1830"!
