Harlem Stage will celebrate the 7th Annual National Chamber Music Month with a performance from drummer Kendrick Scott’s Oracle ensemble and the Attacca Quartet on May 31.  

Scott has toured and recorded with a wide array of artists, including Herbie Hancock, Marcus Miller, Charles Lloyd, The Crusaders, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Kurt Elling, and Terence Blanchard, on whose Grammy-winning Blue Note album, A Tale of God’s Will (2007), he appeared. As a bandleader, Kendrick has released Reverence (2011) and four albums with his band Oracle—The Source (2007), Conviction (2013), We Are the Drum (2015), and the new A Wall Becomes a Bridge.

Attacca Quartet has sold out concerts from Carnegie Hall and Radio City Music Hall to National Public Radio’s Tiny Desk Concerts. The group has received international acclaim as the first-prize winners of the 7th Osaka International Chamber Music Competition; earned the top prize and were Listeners’ Choice award recipients of the Melbourne International Chamber Music Competition; and were Grand Prize Winners of the 60th annual Coleman Chamber Ensemble Competition. They have served as Juilliard’s Graduate Resident String Quartet, the Quartet in Residence at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Quartet in Residence at Texas State University.

The concert is supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.
