The Semiosis Quartet presents a concert at the Firehouse Space in Brooklyn featuring a premier of Justin Barish’s new quartet “first snow: butterfly/butterflied…,” Shawn Jeager’s “Thy Wondering Eyes,” Georg Friedrich Haas’ String Quartet No. 2, and Psalom by Arvo Pärt.

The Semiosis Quartet thrives on passionately presenting 20th and 21st century compositions. With new music as a focus, we commission and work closely with living composers. Improvisation is also an important part of our performance values. Members include violinists Natalie Calma and Nicole Parks, violist Oliver Chang, and temporary cellist Stephen Marotto. We have performed with Equilibrium Concert Series, Church of the Advent Library Concert Series, August Noise JP, and we have coached with composers Joan Tower and the JACK Quartet. We have collaborated with the world music duo Terra Madre and attended the 2015 Emerging Quartets and Composers program at Deer Valley under the direction of the Muir Quartet. Collectively, members of the Semiosis Quartet hold degrees from The Boston Conservatory, Eastman School of Music, Boston University, and St. Olaf College.
