Artist Spotlight: Pacifica Quartet’s Austin Hartman

We are thrilled to release American Voices this month. This album was a true labor of love allowing us to capture Dvořák’a beloved “American Quartet,” a work that we have all enjoyed presenting for audiences throughout our career. In addition to the Dvořák, this project also gave us an exciting opportunity to share with our listeners the moving text from Sylvia Dianne Beverly’s poem Pitch In as presented in a new work for string quartet and children’s choir composed by our friend and colleague James Lee III. Recorded in collaboration with the talented young artists with the Chicago based children’s choir Uniting Voices, we were struck by the beautiful fusion of music and poetry that challenges all of us to consider what we can do to “pitch in” and help address food insecurity while supporting those in need. We are excited to share that, working in conjunction with Cedille, a percentage from the proceeds of each album sold will be donated to a local charity dedicated to addressing poverty and homelessness in Chicago. With the release of this album, we invite all of you to grab a copy, “pitch in,” and enjoy American Voicesthe second installment from our three-disc American Collection recording project that will include an exciting part three offering coming soon. Enjoy!
