Friction Quartet: Award-winning, Groundbreaking Musicians

Friction Quartet, whose performances have been called “terribly beautiful” (San Francisco Classical Voice), “stunningly passionate” (Calgary Herald) and “chillingly effective” (San Francisco Examiner), exists to expand the string quartet repertoire and audience for adventurous contemporary music through commissioning composers and performing in underserved schools and communities.  Joshua Kosman (San Francisco Chronicle) declared that Friction Quartet is “an artist who should be discovered” and described their performance as “high-octane music making…a fine blend of rhythmic ferocity and tonal flair.”

Friction Quartet performs Wednesday, June 8th at the Westhaven Center for the Arts and Thursday, June 9th at "The Space" at 92 Sunny Brae Center.  Show times 7:30pm
