The spring concert features a world premiere by Maine composer Beth Wiemann, titled Minor blasts, some flurries, for string quartet and video; as well as two iconic late 20th century works: John Zorn's Cat O' Nine Tails (Tex Avery directs the Marquis de Sade) and Steve Reich's Different Trains.

Performers include violinists Jennifer Elowitch and Gabriela Diaz, violist Jonathan Bagg and cellist Joshua Gordon
