The Cooperstown Summer Music Festival presents the acclaimed Miró Quartet in "Voices from Home" on Thursday, July 18 at 7pm at The Farmers' Museum.

The program features works by Caroline Shaw, George Walker, Kevin Puts, and Franz Joseph Haydn, two of which are new commissions from their recently-released album Home. Celebrating 30 years as an ensemble in 2025, the GRAMMY-nominated quartet's new album explores the many meanings of “home” through works by four Pulitzer Prize-winning American composers.

Central to the program is Kevin Puts' "Home," inspired by the European refugee crisis. Puts explains, "The refugee crisis in Europe, documented in recent media by horrific stories and photos of displaced families, led me to compose ‘Home.'" This piece anchors a thoughtful exploration of what home means in our complex world.

"Through this program, we invite our audience to contemplate the diverse voices that speak to the idea of home," says Linda Chesis, CSMF's Founder and Artistic Director. "From Puts' meditation on displacement to Haydn's classical foundations, each piece contributes to a nuanced musical dialogue about belonging and identity."

The Miró Quartet will bring these varied voices to life in an evening that promises both musical excellence and emotional depth.
