HOLLAND, MICHIGAN - Three time Grammy Award winner Robert Mirabal will collaborate with ETHEL on the campus of Hope College on Friday, January 27 at 7:30 pm, as part of their Great Performances series.
Mirabal, Pueblo, is one of the most talented American Indian musician alive. He has been named the Native American Music Awards' Artist of the Year and received the Songwriter of the Year award three times.
He is the author of "Skeletons of a Bridge," a book of poetry and prose that was published in 1994 and a more recently book entitled, "Running Alone in Photographs."
Maribal won Grammy's for "Sacred Ground: A Tribute to Mother Earth" and "Johnny Whitehorse Totemic Flute Chants."
ETHEL is a pioneering string quartet. Acclaimed as America's premier postclassical string quartet, ETHEL invigorates contemporary concert music with refreshing exuberance, fierce intensity, imaginative programming and exceptional artistry. Formed in 1998, New York's ebullient ETHEL is comprised of Juilliard-trained performers Jennifer Choi (violin), Cornelius Dufallo (violin), Ralph Farris (viola), and Dorothy Lawson (cello).
Using the instruments of the string quartet, Native American flutes and drums, as well as the spirited voices of Hope students, ETHEL and Mirabal unite to create a cross-cultural contemporary music event.
This spectacular performance will be held in the Dimnent Memorial Chapel, 277 College Avenue in Holland.
