TCMG celebrates the culmination of their 30th Anniversary Season with a ground-breaking commission. GRAMMY® Award-winning musician, actor, artist, storyteller, Taos Pueblo Elder and longtime TCMG collaborator, Robert Mirabal, comes together with his longtime collaborator, the GRAMMY® Award-winning, genre-defying, New York-based string quartet, ETHEL, to premiere a new work for string quartet and Native American Flute, “Red Willow Suite.” Inspired by Pueblo history and flute music, the piece was commissioned to honor TCMG’s 30 years of music, community, collaboration and connection to the land.  

Reimagining the concert experience, Mirabal & ETHEL offer a new ceremony full of original music, movement, and wisdom, in honor of Taos Pueblo and the greater Taos community. The program also includes performances of pieces from an album they recorded entitled “The River,” ETHEL’s own electrifying and eclectic mix of string quartet music (including reimagined works by Bach and Hildegard von Bingen) and a composition that ETHEL commissioned in 2022, “Terraria” by Sam Wu, with TCMG flutist Nancy Laupheimer.
