Ethel Returns to Akron 

When: Thu., April 14 2011

It isn't easy being Ethel. Since its 1998 inception, the peripatetic, post-classical string quartet from New York City has been tackling projects that range from collaborations with Todd Rundgren to teaching string-quartet composition to native American kids. When they aren't roaming the reservation seeking indigenous music makers, they're touring the world with their unique repertoire of adventurous modern music. Yet somehow, Ethel's four Juilliard-trained members have found time to return to the Akron Art Museum, where you can catch them tonight at 6:30. They'll be bringing with them Robert Mirabal, a Grammy-winning native American flutist, for a program that blends ancient musical traditions with the quartet's post-modern sensibilities. Joining the strings, flutes, and native drums in the intimate confines of the museum's Charles and Jane Lehner Auditorium will be the ethereal voices of the Kenmore High School choir. General admission is $30 and includes a post-concert reception with the musicians. Snag your tix at akronartmuseum.org or by calling 330-376-9186. The museum is at One South High St. in Akron. — Cicora
