The music [of the O’Connor Quartet] married bluegrass and spikey classical styles… Rigorous counterpoint, reharmonized fiddle tunes and propulsive rhythms…It's the language and spirit of this country's native harmony, delivered in classical garb THE OREGONIAN
Made up of some of the most talented and exciting string players on the scene, this quartet offers an unforgettable evening of explorations in new musical territory.

The concert offerings: O'Connor's String Quartet No. 2 "BLUEGRASS" - which features blazingly intricate rhythms; "soulful, high lonesome harmonies"; and achingly beautiful melodies, selections from O'Connor's "APPALACHIA WALTZ," and O'Connor's latest, String Quartet No. 3 "OLD-TIME" - composed on . . . commission for the Quadricentennial of the Hudson River.
Also featured are high flying, virtuoso duets with each possible pairing of the group members, three of whom are CAMI artists. All of these celebrated works draw on O'Connor's own well-documented (and uniquely American) musical history.
