As collaborators, string ensemble Turtle Island Quartet and pianist Cyrus Chestnut are a natural match. The Grammy Award-winning chamber group and the Howard University music department faculty member are known for integrating various musical styles in their performances. The artists give a collaborative jazz concert featuring notes of gospel, sacred, Appalachian and classical music. The program “Carry Me Home” includes works by jazz greats Duke Ellington and John Coltrane, bluegrass pioneer Bill Monroe, and R&B singer Bill Withers. Listeners also hear the world premiere of Saint Paul AME, a new piece by Middlebury College assistant professor Matthew Evan Taylor, commissioned for the Mahaney Arts Center Performing Arts Series’ 100th anniversary season.
