Compelling, engaging and informative, the vibrant performances of Pyxis Piano Quartet have become increasingly sought after in the mid-Atlantic region. The Philadelphia Inquirer has described Pyxis as “excellent,” and Christine Facciolo (deartsinfo.com) stated in a recent review “balance, ensemble, superb intonation and sensitive interpretation characterized this performance.”

Each concert begins with a short curator talk exploring connections with the collection.  The Thronson Café serves drinks and light fare before each concert; coffee and desserts are served at intermission.
