OSSINING, N.Y., April 17, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The world-renowned Cassatt String Quartet returns to Bethany Arts Community for an afternoon reverie of music in an intimate setting.

Florence Price and Dorothy Rudd Moore were both groundbreaking musicians. Price was the first African-American woman to have her music performed by a major orchestra. Moore, who lived in New York City until her death last year, was co-founder of the Society of Black Composers and taught at New York University. There’s been a recent a renaissance of interest in both composers.

Founded in 1985, the group’s discography includes over forty recordings, including three discs named “10 Best Classical Recordings” in The New Yorker Magazine. The CSQ is named for the American Impressionist painter Mary Cassatt.
