tronomy Series will begin Thursday,

the ninth season of Music at Noon:
The Logan Wintergarden Series. Jazz
fans and chamber music fans alike
will be drawn to the performance by
Quartette Indigo at Penn State Erie,
- 10p.m
The Behrend College. Set for noon
on Tuesday, Sept. 29, the ensemble,
which is billed as “jazz’s leading
string quartet,” will open the season
with sassy, sweet, and spicy melodies.
Cellist and native New Yorker Akua
Dixon Turre put the group together
twenty-five years ago in order to
“make people enjoy the music and be
able to pop their fingers.” Turre’s sis
ter, Gayle Dixon, on first violin, John
Blake on second violin, and Ron
Lawrence on viola round out the quar
tet, but each member is a talented
musician who also excels in strong
solo performances as well. The
group’s repertoire ranges from Scott
Joplin’s “Rag Time Dance” to Duke
Ellington’s “Come Sunday” and
works by John Coltrane and
Theolonious Monk. Quartette Indigo
is distinguished from other string
quartets by its improvisatory skill and
its ability to cross the arbitrary bound
ary between spiritual and secular
music. Although its members employ
classical technique, audiences can
expect to "pop their fingers.” The
Logan Series at Penn State Erie brings
world-class musicians to the College
to perform in an informal setting. Per
formances are free and open to the
public, and because the performances
are at noon, guests are invited to bring
a brown-bag lunch. The series is
made possible through a grant from
the Harry A. Logan, Jr. Foundation.

Activities at (814) 898-6171.
