The Old Post Office Playhouse presents an evening of classical, bluegrass, and folk music as the members of the Kontras Quartet team up with the world-renowned bluegrass group, the Kruger Brothers. The Kontras Quartet, composed of violinists Dmitri Pogorelov and Francois Henkins, violist Ben Weber, and cellist Jean Hatmaker are dedicated to exploring contrasts in music. (“Kontras” is the Afrikaans word for “contrasts.”) However, listening to them perform alongside Jens Kruger, Uwe Kruger, and Joel Landsberg, you can easily hear that classical and folk music contrast less than you might think. Audiences at the OPOP will enjoy these incredible musicians in a performance on February 1, 2019 at 7:30 pm.
