Sirius Quartet (New York)

November 4 @ 6:00 pm - 10:30 pm

Internationally acclaimed veterans of contemporary music, Sirius Quartet combines exhilarating repertoire with unequalled improvisational fire. These conservatory-trained performer-composers shine with precision, soul and a raw energy rarely witnessed on stage, championing a forward-thinking, genre-defying approach that makes labels like ‘New Music’ sound tame.

Since their debut concert at the original Knitting Factory in New York City, Sirius has played some of the most important venues in the world, including Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall, the Beijing Music Festival, the Cologne Music Triennale, Stuttgart Jazz, Musique Actuelle in Canada, the Taichung Jazz Fest – Taiwan’s biggest jazz event – and many others.

Having premiered works by significant living composers, Sirius continues their long-running commitment to musical innovation with bold, original works by its own members, pushing beyond the conventional vocabulary of string instruments by incorporating popular song forms, extended techniques, gripping improvisations and undeniable, contemporary grooves.

Join us for a night of world-class music in Gallery 8, with the option of a dinner before the show at The Skotnes Restaurant.

  • Tickets cost R500 for the show, including dinner.
  • Tickets cost R200 for the show only, excluding dinner.
  • Dinner commences at 18:00 sharp, and the show starts at 20:30.
  • General Members and Art Club Members get 10% discount on dinner tickets.
  • All tickets are inclusive of admission to our galleries which can be enjoyed from 17:00.
