For 14 years the Cypress String Quartet has presented the Call & Response program to expand chamber music repertoire and inspire all audiences’ imaginations. Each year the Cypress creates that link by commissioning a composer to ‘respond’ to the ‘call’ of chamber music repertoire or literature. Following as many as two dozen or more educational outreach presentations before students of all levels and communities, the Cypress Quartet performs the Call & Response concert at Herbst Theatre in San Francisco’s War Memorial Building. Scholarship tickets permit participating students to attend the public performance free of charge. More info at http://callandresponse.cypressquartet.com

In 2014 we present the 15th Annual C&R program, this time - due to Herbst Theatre being closed for renovations - at the classically beautiful Marines Memorial Theatre near Union Square in San Francisco. The program features music by Schubert and Webern along with the World Premiere of George Tsontakis' 6th String Quartet, commissioned for the occasion.
