Every year, Pro Musica Joplin brings internationally-reknowned classical musicians to our school to enhance the arts experience for our fourth and fifth graders. Wednesday, we had the honor of hearing the Escher String Quartet, from New York.
From the group's website:
The Escher Quartet takes its name from Dutch graphic artist M.C. Escher, inspired by Escher’s method of interplay between individual components working together to form a whole.
Our class was intrigued by the name of the quartet since we had recently created tessellations, inspired by some of M. C. Escher's works.
