Friction Quartet + Vocal Quartet

Friction teams up with a group of vocalist for the premiere of new works by composers Nick Benavides, Danny Clay, Noah Luna, and Mark Winges. Each of these new works draws inspiration from an artist that died young: the great Hank Williams, charismatic cellist Jacqueline du Pré, bebop legend Charlie Parker, and the American poet Joe Bolton. 


This project is made possible by the generosity of George Hopkins, Russ Irwin, San Francisco Friends of Chamber Music, and the Zellerbach Foundation.
