Jesse Holstein and the Members of Community MusicWorks
"A Musical Treat!" - Back by Popular Demand!

Join us and enjoy an exploration by Jesse Holstein and listen to a partial performance of Béla Bartók’s 4th String Quartet with members of Community MusicWorks.

Composed in Budapest in the summer of 1928, Bartók’s 4th string quartet is one of his most iconic and popular works. Conceived in one large symmetrical arch in five movements, the work greatly expanded the boundaries of expression for the genre of the string quartet. (Performers from Community MusicWorks are: Sarah Kim, violin; Jesse Holstein, viola; Miquel Vasquez, cello.)

Since 2001, Jesse Holstein has been a Resident Musician for Community MusicWorks - a youth and family-mentoring program that provides free instruments, lessons and a variety of programs in the West-End and South Side of Providence. He is the Concertmaster of the New Bedford Symphony and is on the faculty of Brown University.
