Front Porch Presents: Our Place

Front Porch is a mixed quartet that invites audiences to engage personally with the voices of their close friends, reimagining the classical concert experience with warmth and love at its foundation. Their uncommon instrumentation — violin, bassoon, piano, and percussion — makes them equally at home with composers, folk artists, opera singers, and everyone in between. With "Our Place," Front Porch celebrates incredible composers from the University of Michigan's composition program with four world premieres by Douglas Hertz, Nina Shekhar, Corey Dundee, and Jung Yoon Wie alongside additional works from their ever-expanding repertoire. 

This concert is made possible thanks to a generous grant from the University of Michigan's Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and co-sponsored by the University of Michigan Museum of Art.
