Midnight Mission Quartet Concert

 

This afternoon, Vijay Gupta and the Chrome Quartet filled the air with beautiful music for an appreciative room at Midnight Mission.  Starting off the concert with a fresh rendition of Bach’s “Prelude” from the E Major Partita, Vijay instantly focused the energy in the room:

After the dazzling four-minute piece, Vijay took a few questions and explained some of the finer points of playing a stringed instrument:

After this Q&A, the Chrome Quartet took over the stage, first with a quick movement from Mozart’s “Eine Kleine Nachtmusik” and a set of pop tunes of Taylor Swift, Cold Play, Maroon 5, The Beatles and Katy Perry:

After this, cellist Tao Ni took center stage and stunned the audience with a movement from Zoltán Kodály’s Cassado Suite:

Following the solo cello, Chrome’s two violinists Luanne Homzy and Lindsay Deutsch whipped up an estival storm and wowed the crowd with the Presto of Vivaldi’s “Summer,” the toastiest of his Four Seasons:

Finishing up the concert was an arrangement by Homzy of Lady Gaga’s “Applause.”  Without doubt, the applause for the group gave even Lady Gaga a run for her money, with cheers and a standing ovation.  At the conclusion, the group got together with Vijay and a few others for a group photo:
