Fry Street Quartet (USU Artists in residence)
The Fry Street Quartet will present a diverse program of works spanning three centuries, including a quartet by Libby Larsen that was commissioned last year for The Crossroads Project.
Founded in Chicago in 1997, the Fry Street received rave reviews as prizewinners at various Competitions. The quartet traveled to Israel to participate in the International Encounters Chamber Music Seminar in 2000, where they studied with Isaac Stern. He invited the quartet to the Isaac Stern Chamber Music Workshop in New York City and subsequently arranged for the quartet’s Carnegie Hall debut in 2001.
Hailed as “a triumph of ensemble playing” (New York Times), the Fry Street Quartet has reached audiences from Carnegie Hall to Sarajevo and Jerusalem. The quartet began its international career as cultural ambassadors to the Balkan States, sponsored by Carnegie Hall and the U.S. Department of State.
A recent defining endeavor was the quartet’s first complete Beethoven Quartet Cycle. “These works put players to the test in terms of interpretation, technique and musicianship.”
In response to the issues of global sustainability, the Fry Street Quartet, alongside physicist and educator Dr. Robert Davies, present Crossroads: an evocative performance blending music, information, imagery—and a dash of theater. Crossroads is a deep-seated and visceral contemplation of the choices before us, the paths they forge, and the dramatically different landscapes to which they lead. A full-length concert version featuring a commissioned work by Laura Kaminsky alongside projections of paintings created for the project by artist Rebecca Allan will debut later this year.
In 2002, at the invitation of Utah State University and the Caine Foundation, the Fry Street Quartet arrived in Logan. The task was to build a performance-based approach to a string program. Because you're wondering … “Fry Street” was the location of the quartet’s first rehearsal space in the Chicago neighborhood once ruled by Al Capone.

Dianne Hardy, Pianist
Songs Everybody Loves
Diane's life has been in music, as a piano teacher and performer. She recently retired from the USU music department. She doesn't want to brag about her "piled higher and deeper." Her program will consist of songs everybody knows and loves. She will not only delight us with the songs she plays, she will also tickle our brains, as she asks us to identify some of the songs she presents. Be prepared for a fun noon hour with this master musician."

Lezlee and Jordan Reunion Performance
Lezlee and Jordan will perform bluegrass and pop music, original and familiar tunes and songs with piano and banjo accompaniment.
Jordan Snow has been playing banjo since he was 12 years old. He and his mother, Lezlee, started as a duet and this experience provided him an opportunity to play with several bluegrass bands. His natural ability and love of practice enabled him to take first place awards at Utah banjo competitions several times in the following years.
Lezlee Snow Monroe grew up in Logan and is a singer, songwriter, and a keyboardist and is currently working on her 8th album of original music. She has been playing with the Ogden-based Classic Rock band “Two Weeks Notice” for the last four years. She teaches and coaches singing and piano lessons.
