MUSICIANS
Cuatro Puntos Ensemble

Cuatro Puntos Ensemble performs musical works that have challenged the status quo over the past 50 years, beginning with examples of Soviet Era dissent and moving to the present-day Middle East and United States. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, this event will be streamed in high quality from the chapel at the University of Saint Joseph in West Hartford, Connecticut.  Upon reserving your ticket, you will receive a link that will take you to an exclusive virtual room.

54% of the arts workforce in the United States has been lost since March 2020, making collaboration among organizations vital. Musicians on the Frontlines is presented as a partnership between Cuatro Puntos and the Autorino Center for the Arts at the University of Saint Joseph.
