Real Vocal String QuartetChoose a box, any box, and the Real Vocal String Quartet will think outside it. They’re a string quartet and a women’s vocal quartet. They play Irish fiddle tunes and Brazilian choros, chamber music and wild improvisation. They backed up Feist on her indie-pop hit Metals, which Jon Pareles of the New York Times named his favorite album of 2011, and appeared with her on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

All performers are welcome to participate in this event that has produced some of our brightest performers, including: Shawn Colvin, Dana Carvey, Alvin Youngblood Hart, and Patrick Landeza.

HERE'S HOW IT WORKS! One unique aspect of our Open Mic is that, unlike those held in noisy bars where people show up in spite of the fact that there's live music, you will be playing to a supportive group of friends and performers who are actually listening!!!

The Young Women’s Chorus collaborates with Keith Terry, a renowned percussionist and rhythm dancer whose work encompasses music, dance, theater, and performance art. As a self-described “body musician,” Keith uses the oldest musical instrument in the world – the human body – as the basis for exploring, blending, and bending traditional and contemporary rhythmic, percussive, and movement possibilities.
