Doctoral Candidate Maren Rothfritz, violist of the Argus Quartet, will travel to Long Beach, California, in March 2023 to perform at the Carpenter Performing Arts Center at California State University Long Beach. The Argus Quartet will perform ahupua’a, written for them by Kanaka Maoli violist and composer Anne Leilehua Lanzilotti, a finalist for the 2022 Pulitzer Prize in Music, who will join as a guest artist. The subject of the new work is the Hawaiian concept of ahupua’a, a system of land division centered around community needs. The program, co-curated by the Argus Quartet and Lanzilotti, will also feature music by inti figgis-vizueta and Raven Chacon, as well as other works by Lanzilotti. In addition to the concert performance, the Quartet will engage in a variety of community outreach activities with students in the Long Beach area.
