Friction String Quartet
Friction, an experimental string quartet, seeks to carve a new path in today’s classical music landscape. Through artistic collaboration in varied mediums, the commissioning of new works, crossing into genres outside of classical music, adding movement to our performances, and incorporating mixed medias, we create an exhilarating and inviting atmosphere that attracts audiences of all ages and interests.
Community improvement and education are crucial elements to our mission; free public performance and outreach in struggling communities and schools will build and sustain a vibrant culture, while broadening future audiences of classical music. Change creates friction, and Friction creates change.
