Named for the river dividing their respective countries, Río Mira brings together the Colombian musician Esteban Copete and Ecuadorian musician Karla Kanora and additional master folkloric musicians from the region.
As an ensemble, Río Mira’s cultural identity is rooted in the Pacific Coast of Ecuador and Colombia, with the marimba playing a unifying role, both in the local culture and the ensemble’s unique sound.
This bi-national group specializes in crafting contemporary music with traditional sounds that date back hundreds of years.
Praised for playing with “supreme melodic control and total authority” (Calgary Herald), the Argus Quartet has quickly emerged as one of today’s most dynamic and versatile young ensembles.
The group won First Prize at both the 2017 Concert Artists Guild Victor Elmaleh Competition, and the 2017 M-Prize Chamber Arts Competition. They have performed in many international music centers.
The Argus Quartet is the Graduate Quartet in Residence at the Juilliard School, where they are working closely with the Juilliard String Quartet.
