Guest Announcement: Hausmann Quartet at SDSU Smith Recital Hall: April 8th, 2014.

'SDSU Artists in Residence Hausmann Quartet present Converge - Comedy & Dialogue: A dynamic interactive concert combining chamber music, comedy, and scholarly thought.

(San Diego, CA) – The Hausmann Quartet presents Converge, an inspiring and collaborative chamber concert series celebrating the intersection of music, art, literature and scholarly thought, on Tues., April 8 at 7:00 p.m. in Smith Recital Hall on the SDSU Campus. Converge is open to the public and is free of charge.

April’s Converge theme, Comedy and Dialogue, explores the engaging, communicative, playful and sometimes humorous qualities of musical dialogue in chamber music, and its parallels with improvisational acting. String quartet repertoire from Haydn, Bach and Kurtag, set against a comedic backdrop provided by special guests from SDSU’s School of Theatre, Television and Film and the improve comedy group lota Eta Pi, will encourage an evening of fun and surprises.

"As musicians we spend many of the most meaningful moments of our lives on stage, yet it can be easy to forget how much we have in common with the actors, comedians and artists who inhabit these same spaces” explains Alex Greenbaum, Hausmann Quartet cellist. “We are all stage performers, and we relish this opportunity to collaborate with our University colleagues from the world of comedy and drama."

Converge is presented by the acclaimed Hausmann Quartet, Isaac Allen, Guillaume Pirard, Angela Choong and Alex Greenbaum, Artists in Residence at San Diego State University.
