Two Grammy wins for 2020 BachFest featured artists



The Attacca String Quartet that will be the featured artists for the 2020 Northwest BachFest, to be held from Tuesday, February 25 to Saturday, February 29. The Quartet won two Grammy's at last week's ceremony. The first was for Best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble Performance. Receiving this Grammy puts the spotlight on this young string quartet that had already received significant recognition.

The second was for Best Contemporary Classical Composition for Caroline Shaw's Orange album performed by the Attacca String Quartet. They will be performing Entr'acte from the Grammy-winning composition on Wednesday, February 26 at Barrister Winery. Artistic Director Zuill Bailey, without fear of setting up a disappointment, predicted to the full house at the Itzhak Perlman concert at the Fox Theater on January 13 that the Attacca Quartet would win a 2020 Grammy!

The 2020 BachFest concerts features a celebration of Beethoven's 250th birthday. For tickets and more information, visit nwbachfest.com. Congratulations to the members of Attacca Quartet!
