Event website

The Rasa String Quartet presents Song and Dance, a program centered around the relationship between voice, movement, and music. You will hear works by contemporary composers from North America and East Asia, alongside a traditional masterwork from the long-celebrated European canon.

Rasa String Quartet finds their niche exploring the musical space where classical and folk traditions intersect and influence one another.

Formed in 2019, the Boston-based ensemble consists of violinists Maura Shawn Scanlin and Kiyoshi Hayashi, violist Emma Powell, and cellist Mina Kim, who are graduates of the New England Conservatory, the Shepherd School of Music, and Yale University.
