Enjoy the thrill of live music and stunning sunsets from the comfort of your own socially distant 8'X8' block. Bring your own chair and refreshments and drink in the glorious sounds.   

Masks must be worn throughout the evening, except when enjoying refreshments in your own block. 

First up is the fresh, young Tesla Quartet with "Variations on a Russian Theme," which will include a string quartet by Pavel Karmanov and Pyotr Illych Tchaikovsky's String Quartet, No. 1 in D Major, Op. 11. 
Thursday, August 13 at 7:30pm. Rain date: Friday, August 14 at 7:30pm

Praised for their "superb capacity to find the inner heart of everything they play, regardless of era, style or technical demand," the Tesla Quartet brings refinement and prowess to both new and established repertoire.

You can catch them "quarantuning" up at home—here.

The Morris Museum's Lot of Strings Festival is made possible by a generous gift from F. Gary Knapp.
