Catalyst Quartet

“Quartet playing at its very best” (Peninsula Reviews)

Annual Educator Appreciation Concert (Educators are free)


Feb 26, 2023


About the Artists


In its Carnegie Hall debut, the Catalyst Quartet earned praise for its “invariably energetic and finely burnished” playing and “earthy vigor” (The New York Times).

The Quartet’s latest concert/recording series, UNCOVERED, showcases beautifully crafted works by composers historically overlooked due to their race or gender. “Most crucially, the Catalyst Quartet creates a palpable sense of fresh discovery, of musical joy in the process of bringing these neglected scores to life” (The Strad).

Due to illness, clarinetist Anthony McGill has had to withdraw from his February 26th performance with the Catalyst Quartet at Clayton State’s Spivey Hall.


Pre-concert Talk

Pre-concert Talk one hour before performance at 2pm.

Clayton State music professor Dr.Kurt-Alexander Zeller gives engaging, insightful talks about the music, and often plays recorded excerpts of pieces in the program. These talks begin one hour prior to concert time for selected Strings and Vocal series concerts and are free for all ticket-holders.
