YOUNGSTOWN — The Rhythm Method String Quartet will perform at 7:30 p.m. today (Nov. 8) at the Butler Institute of American Art — North, 524 Wick Ave., as part of the 2019-20 Donald P. Pipino Performing Arts Series.

The all-female quartet strives to reimagine the string quartet in a contemporary, feminist context. This season, the quartet continues its Hidden Mothers Project, an initiative highlighting works by historical female composers. It also will bring the third installment of Broad Statements, a celebration of creative music-making by women in a wide array of artistic styles.

The Rhythm Method’s recording of “Silence Seeking Solace” (with soprano Alice Teyssier) recently was featured on Dai Fujikura’s “Chance Monsoon”, and the quartet is prominently featured on cellist Meaghan Burke’s album “Creature Comforts.”

The concert is co-sponsored by 88.5 WYSU-FM. 

Tickets are $22 for adults; $17 for senior citizens and YSU faculty/staff; $5 for children under 18; and free for YSU students and children 5 and younger. Tickets are general admission and available at ysu.tix.com or by calling the YSU Theatre Box Office at 330-941-2307.
