Ethel will perform "Grace" Thursday, June 19th at 7:30p.m.

The Just Summer series opens with ETHEL (a string quartet) presenting an introspective program, “Grace”. In every sense of the word, "Grace" provides effortless beauty and charm, goodwill, a favor, and a reprieve. This program is a journey to redemption through music. In complex, stressful times and in a world overwhelmed by seemingly irreconcilable differences and unsustainable challenges, music provides both an immediate tonic of relief and a medium for real long-term healing and understanding. ETHEL has pursued this aspect of their art in many ways over the years, both in their own creative output, and in opening their hearts and skills to close collaboration with master artists from diverse cultures across the globe.

The centerpiece of this astonishing program is ETHEL's own adaptation of Ennio Morricone's moving score to the 1986 film, The Mission. Morricone’s score was nominated for an Academy Award in 1986 and won the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Score. The film deals with cross-cultural complexities fueled by the quest for redemption against the backdrop of the jungles of South America. Also featured on the concert are special quartet treatments honoring the 20th anniversary of the release of Jeff Buckley's Grace – his glorious, and tragically, only, completed studio album. Favorite ETHEL composers and collaborators Mary Ellen Childs (USA), Marcelo Zarvos (Brazil), and Carlo Mombelli (South Africa) along with original music by members of ETHEL, fill out the program with works both searching and deeply joyful.

Following the concert, ETHEL will do a question and answer session with the audience.
