At 7:30 pm on Friday, Nov 20, Fontana will showcase the innovative American quartet Brooklyn Rider in an online concert.  Known for its commitment to the music of today and its collaborations with a surprising range of artists, from banjoist Bela Fleck to Celtic fiddler Martin Hayes, Friday's program will be based on Brooklyn Rider's newest release, Healing Modes. It is centered around one of the greatest works in the string quartet repertoire: Beethoven's String Quartet No. 15, which includes the "Song of Thanksgiving." Cara Lieurance talks to founding member and violist Nicholas Cords to find out more.
