Exploring diverse and intriguing sounds and ideas in new music, art and society, this season of New Lens continues on Sunday, July 17 with Bourbon Baroque playing the music of Philip Glass.

Bourbon Baroque’s Outgoing Artistic Director, Alice Culin-Ellison, joins other string players of the ensemble: Sarah Cranor, Allison Monroe, and Lara Turner. The quartet will play some of Glass’s iconic string quartet music like “Company,” the String Quartet No. 3 (Mishima) and selections from “Bent.”
