Event Description:
The ninth annual Pivot Arts Festival: Reimagining Utopia will take place May 21 – June 6 in both live and virtual spaces!
A celebration of contemporary performance, this year’s festival presents 12 selected artists and artistic groups commissioned to create video installations or short, live works responding to the theme of reimagining a better world post-pandemic.
Events include: a “performance tour” where masked audiences will be led through spaces as if moving through a gallery exhibition; an outdoor all ages puppetry show; an outdoor presentation of a string quartet; and video works to be presented at Rivendell Theater and on our website.
We are committed to bringing small groups of artists and audiences together in live spaces while prioritizing safety. Due to limited capacity in compliance with COVID-19 safety guidelines, advance ticket purchases are highly encouraged.

KAIA String Quartet presents String Quartet in B minor, Scherzo by Teresa Carreño and String Quartet No. 3, 1st and 2nd movements, by Claudio Santoro—live music performance

Two times: 5 and 6 p.m.

KAIA String Quartet is dedicated to presenting the rich tradition of music from Latin America. Venezuelan composer Teresa Carreño’s String Quartet in B minor (1896) is described as one of her most sophisticated works in spite of certain restrictions she faced as a 19th-century female composer. Claudio Santoro was among the major influential figures in 20th-century Brazilian music, praised by his renowned contemporaries Igor Stravinsky and Aaron Copland. He composed the String Quartet No. 3 during his “Nationalistic Period” after 1953 and, although rarely performed, it is one of 500 compositions he wrote throughout his lifetime.
