The One of the world’s premiere string quartets presents a concert with reader describing the lyrics of war on our fifteenth anniversary of the September 11th attack on our homeland.

Join us as The American String Quartet performs a moving 9/11 performance to honor fallen veterans, those immersed in global conflict and victims of our nation’s tragedy on 9/11. This musical performance of “Lyric in the Time of War” will include carefully chosen works, interspersed with readings by poet Tom Sleigh, a journalist who has covered dozens of wars and will share his poignant poetry on his experiences.

Playing with “precision, eloquence and subtlety,” The American String Quartet is recognized as one of the finest quartets in the world. Their appearance at Barrington’s White House will be particularly moving and passionate as they perform specially selected works to honor fallen veterans, those immersed in global conflict and victims of our nation’s tragedy on 9/11.
