Event description

Description

Denison ‘alums’ ETHEL, having received honorary degrees at Commencement 2017, present a concert reflecting on their experience as Denison’s ensemble-in-residence. At the heart of ETHEL is a collaborative ethos–a quest for a common creative expression that is forged in the celebration of community. That has certainly been the experience at Denison! Celebrating their five years as members of the Denison family, we hope you’ll join us for what is sure to be an emotional and inspirational concert.

Established in New York City in 1998, ETHEL quickly earned a reputation as one of America’s most adventurous string quartets – heirs to the likes of the Kronos Quartet and Soldier String Quartet, and part of a generation of young artists blending uptown, conservatory musicianship with downtown genre-crossing – by playing with the intensity and accoutrements of a rock band. The New York Times has described them as “indefatigable and eclectic,” The New Yorker has deemed them “vital and brilliant” and Pitchfork has called them “infectiously visceral.” Celebrating 20 years of their singular career, ETHEL has in turn become seminal in its own right, a path-breaker for countless younger genre-spanning ensembles and a prolific commissioner of new music.
