PQ @ National Gallery of Art collab with Diane Monroe

Composer, violinist, and 2018 Pew Fellow Diane Monroe will create an evening-length suite that she describes as ”an exploration aimed at interpreting sonically the joys, fragilities, trials, and dreams of girls/women of color.” Written for violin, Western string quartet, West African kora (a long-necked, 21-string, plucked instrument), and percussion, along with bass and/or guitar, the composition will provide a framework for improvisations by each player, and will weave a musical narrative that incorporates vocalizing, storytelling, and movement. Monroe will engage a group of accomplished musicians: the adventurous, contemporary chamber music ensemble PUBLIQuartet, and Yacouba Sissoko, an internationally recognized master of West African kora and traditional storytelling. Drawing inspiration from museum and historic house collections in Philadelphia’s Germantown neighborhood, Monroe aims to offer audiences new ways to experience the narratives within the city’s African American history and present.
