The Real Vocal String Quartet plays original songs and unique arrangements that pay tribute to music from Appalachia to Kenya or Brazil, with sparkling improvisation.

From pollinating bees to dead zones in the Gulf of Mexico, how we produce and consume food says much about our relationship with the air, water, plants, and animals that surround us and nourish us. Family farmers play a vital role in the system. We all have different and deeply personal answers about what constitutes good food that are shaped by traditions, experiences, nutrition, and community. So what's in your food utopia?
