Traditional Spiritual, New Twist: The Cavani String Quartet

The Cavani Quartet in Studio A

The Cavani String Quartet came to the Interlochen Arts Camp this summer to work with the advanced string quartet program.  While they were on campus, they stopped by IPR's Studio A for a live performance. Here's an excerpt from Midnight Child by Charles G. Washington.  It's based on the spiritual Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child , and mixes some of the music that Washington heard as he grew up: Gospel, Blues and Swing.


The Cavani String Quartet:

Annie Fullard, violin

Mari Sato, violin

Kirsten Docter, viola

Merry Peckham, cello
