The award-winning Del Sol String Quartet presents "Why Patterns?," a free public concert featuring music by Terry Riley and Daniel Bernard Romain as part of its Residency at the Richmond Art Center. This is the first of three interactive outreach performances, each of which will be combined with a visual arts workshop for middle school children that aims to foster musical and artistic involvement by providing opportunities to hear, see and create in new ways. The Quartet's Residency was organized in partnership with the Center and made possible with support from Chamber Music America through its Residency Endowment Fund. The topic, "Why Patterns?," is intended to provoke the students to a more active engagement as listeners and to open up new possibilities to explore while making their own art and music.
