Portato Portato

Portato Portato is an Oakland/Santa Cruz based quartet that performs original works and select compositions from the 20th and 21st centuries. They are committed to presenting experimental and underrepresented music, as well as highlighting the processes of the composer-performer relationship in new music creation.

The ensemble’s 2018 program features works by living composers, including premieres of new music by Julie Herndon, Michael Winter, Laura Steenberge, and Declan Seifkas.
