For our project, Expanding Conventions: Quartet for 6, we are working with Jonathan Bailey Holland to create a large scale work (20-30 minutes) for String Quartet plus Percussion Duo, that take the combination of six players and treats them as one; a new sextet. This combination will unique to the stage, bringing the audiences ears and imaginations to new places, expanding their musical palette. For the premiere performance, we are working with Walton Arts Center and Aeolus String Quartet to bring this work to life at Artosphere Music Festival.

In addition to including these instruments in one cohesive piece of music, the subject material will be drawn from ideas of inclusion in our daily lives. Jonathan has displayed in his compositions a vested interest in the issues of today surround race and equality, bringing to light stories in order to connect with audiences and create an environment of understanding and empathy. This drive in his music will help musicians connect with communities in a deeper way through this great new work.
