Kaia String Quartet, a rising star among American chamber ensembles, returns to UIMA for another season of luxurious sound. The quartet gracefully bridges their devotion to Latin American music with classical pieces and shine together performing melodies by Latin American, European and Ukrainian masters. The evening’s program will include works by Giacomo Puccini, Myroslav Skoryk, Joseph Haydn and Heitor Villa-Lobos. We invite you all to discover and surrender to the sound of pure emotion, precise rhythm and elegance of a truly talented collective!
