Participants can also interact throughout the session via a live chat feed, connecting with the event and each other. Online participants will fully experience the session as if they were in the room.

Exploration of Oblivion for string quartet by Astor Piazzolla will give participants an opportunity to gain tips and insights into the special demands of playing tango chamber music. The second work featured in the masterclass is Prokofiev's popular String Quartet No. 2, 2nd movement. The learning quartets include a student ensemble from Mannes College, New York (Piazzolla), and Augmented 4 String Quartet, young musicians from Connecticut (Prokofiev). The masterclass will end with a performance by PubliQuartet featuring Piazzolla’s Libertango (Arr. Curtis Stewart); Meredith Monk’s Stringsongs movement 4 Phantom Strings, and Jessie Montgomery’s Voodoo Dolls. PubliQuartet will provide brief background and performance insights for each piece.
