Apr 4, 2020 at - | ARCH 208 Auditorium, 3601 Locust Walk



World Premiere // Philadelphia Premiere

This performance takes place in the Arts, Research and Culture House (ARCH) 208 Auditorium, 3601 Locust Walk.


The Daedalus Quartet, Penn’s quartet-in-residence, explores migration through music, illustrating how centuries of cultural cross-pollination has enriched our artistic and spiritual life. Music truly has no borders, unifying through the universality of the human experience. In this performance, the quartet will perform works that exhibit the richness and complexity of this cultural convergence, including a world premiere of a collaborative work by Kinan Abou-afach.
