The Chicago Reader defines the Mivos Quartet as “one of America’s most daring and ferocious new music ensembles.” Reflecting this definition, their concert features works created by giants of European and American contemporary music—and offers the rare opportunity to hear them performed on the Library’s Stradivari instruments. The evening presents an intricate fusion of manners and styles, ranging from expressionistic intensity and raw emotion to the poetry of polychromatic, sonorous spaces and meditative landscapes.

The Ritz Chamber Players are hailed by The Baltimore Sun as “one of the most interesting and dynamic ensembles to emerge in recent years,” boasting some of the world’s preeminent musicians spanning the African diaspora. Its members perform with prestigious organizations including the New York Philharmonic, Boston Symphony, Chicago Symphony, and Philadelphia Orchestra. Interesting, often newly rediscovered repertoire is a feature of the group’s concerts, like the 1839 Louise Farrenc piano quintet on this program of French and American composers. Violinist Kelly Hall-Tompkins premieres a new Library of Congress commission from James Lee III.
Thursday, June 16 at 8:00 pmCoolidge Auditorium
GRAMMY Award-winning quintet Ranky Tanky comes to the Library of Congress to rock the Coolidge Auditorium with its upbeat and contagious energy. The South Carolina-based band is known for its jazz, blues, gospel, and R&B fusion arrangements of traditional Gullah music from America’s Southeast. In its mini-residency at the Library, the band will explore the archives, confer with curators, record educational videos, and conclude their time with an exuberant concert. Join us for a Juneteenth celebration with Ranky Tanky.
