NOVA Chamber Music Series

Mar 14, 2019 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

NOVA Chamber Music Series presents the Fremont String Quartet performing Steve Reich's Different Trains, on March 14 from 7 - 9 PM in the Social Hall.

"When I was one year old my parents separated. My mother moved to Los Angeles and my father stayed in New York. Since they arranged divided custody, I travelled back and forth by train frequently between New York and Los Angeles from 1939 to 1942 accompanied by my governess. While the trips were exciting and romantic at the time, I now look back and think that, if I had been in Europe during this period, as a Jew I would have had to ride very different trains." - Steve Reich

Sounds of the era and the words of American and European train passengers-- by turns humorous and tragic-- blend with the music of the Fremont String Quartet in this powerful sonic testimony to an era that should never be forgotten.
