Carpe Diem has defied easy classification while quickly becoming one of America’s premier “indie” string quartets. With programming that reflects its passions for Gypsy, tango, folk, pop, rock, and jazz-inspired music alongside the traditional string quartet repertoire, Carpe Diem is one of the most unique and sought-after chamber ensembles on the concert stage today. The quartet is dedicated to community engagement, and regularly performs programs specifically designed to relate to audiences of all ages and establish chamber music’s relevance to their lives. They continue to rack up accolades and awards. For three consecutive years, Carpe Diem was the only quartet in America chosen to receive the prestigious PNC Foundation’s ArtsAlive Awards, and they have received rave reviews. We are delighted to have them return to Jamestown this spring.
