Free Concert Featuring Sweet Plantain Quartet

Friday, April 3, 2015, By: Casey Polomaine

Join us on Thursday, April 9th at 3:00 p.m. for an afternoon with Sweet Plantain: a dynamic classical string quartet music influenced by jazz, hip-hop, and latin rhythms.

Artfully fusing the western classical traditions in which they were trained with the hip-hop, jazz improv, and Latin rhythms on which they were raised, their unique repertoire and live shows educate and entertain. Through original compositions and arrangements, and with their use of extended percussive techniques, Sweet Plantain awakens audiences to new possibilities in chamber music. Separately hailing from The Bronx, New Jersey, and Venezuela, together these musicians give voice to a sound that is contemporary, multicultural, and very New York.

The show starts at 3pm and is powered and made possible by the Albany Barn & Troy Music Hall. Admission is free- all ages are welcomed.
