Back by Popular Demand, Catalyst Quartet to Perform at Santa Barbara Art Museum

The Catalyst Quartet

The Catalyst Quartet returns to Santa Barbara at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 10, 2015.

Hailed by The New York Times at their Carnegie Hall debut as “invariably energetic and finely burnished," the Catalyst Quartet comprises top Laureates and alumni of the internationally acclaimed Sphinx Competition, which offers young Black and Latino classical string players a chance to compete under the guidance of an internationally renowned panel of judges and to perform with established professional musicians in a competition setting.

Their fourth performance at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art includes Dvořák’s String Quartet No. 12 in F Major, Op. 96 (nicknamed the American Quartet), Osvaldo Golijov’s Tenebrae, Canadian composer Marcus Goddard’s Allaqi, American folk songs arranged by the Catalyst Quartet and the RomanticString Quartet No. 1 in E minor (“From My Life”) by Czech composer Bedřich​ Smetana.

Tickets are $18 for SBMA members and $22 for the general public. They can be purchased at the Museum visitor services desks or online at tickets.sbma.net.

The concert will be held in the Mary Craig Auditorium at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, 1130 State Street in Santa Barbara.

Katrina Carl is the public relations manager for the Santa Barbara Museum of Art.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
