Art on Screen

Behind the Strings

Wednesday, January 11, 2023 | 2 PM & 7:30 PM


Filmmaker Michael Peroff will introduce this film and participate in a Q&A after each screening.


When Mao’s Cultural Revolution ended, China’s door cracked open. Four young, classical musicians seized the opportunity to flee to the West as classical music was banned. This film explores how the Shanghai Quartet began a lifetime adventure – studying with great masters, attending Juilliard, participating in a residence at Montclair State, and performing at major music festivals and best classical music venues like Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center and The Kennedy Center. This film showcases their lives, how they got to the top and the price they pay.


General Admission is $15.00. Member tickets are $12.00. Become a Morris Museum Member today.
