A concert series that has brought a bevy of world-class chamber musicians to Chattanooga since its formation in 2009 will bring in a few dozen more during its fifth season, opening tonight, Oct. 10, at the Hunter Museum of American Art.
String Theory will feature the Brentano String Quartet accompanied by the series' founder, pianist Gloria Chien, associate professor of music at Lee University, a co-sponsor of the series with the Hunter.
In addition to music, the series offers Musical Dialogues with the performers and Art Connections, showcasing links between art and music.
