      PRISM Quartet: 'Mending Wall' World Premiere

      The Performing Arts Series and PRISM Quartet present the world premiere of 'Mending Wall.'

      Mending Wall

      Something there is that doesn't love a wall —Robert Frost

      "A bold ensemble that set the standard for contemporary classical saxophone quartets." —The New York Times

      In 'Mending Wall,' soprano Tony Arnold and pianist Arturo O’Farrill join the PRISM Quartet in a fully staged concert exploring the meaning of walls in our world. Four visionary composers—Martin Bresnick, George E. Lewis, Juri Seo, and O’Farrill—take inspiration from poetry by Robert Frost, Keorapetse Kgositsile, Waly Salomão, and Guillermo Gómez-Peña to give musical form to questions about identity, community, division, and freedom. Directed by Jorinde Keesmaat with lighting design by Aaron Copp.  

      Free for Tri-Co. Reserve through the Arts Office: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Goodhart 200, 610-526-5300, or
