Concert preview: The Catalyst Quartet opens the Fontana season Friday
The first concert of the season for Fontana is Friday, Sept 30 at 7:30 pm in the Dalton Center Recital Hall at Western Michigan University. It's been since 2015 that the Catalyst String Quartet performed in Kalamazoo. Cara Lieurance spoke with cellist Karlos Rodriguez for an update and a preview of the works on the program. He says the quartet is busier than ever with Catalyst concerts and solo appearances by members of the group.
WMU professor emeritus Brad Wong recently became Fontana's executive director. He fills in some of the recent developments with the chamber music organization and previews the rest of the season, which features the St. Lawrence String Quartet, jazz saxophonist Immanuel Wilkins, and the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center.
More information and tickets are available at the Fontana website.
