The newly-formed Heritage String Quartette will present its debut concert featuring compositions by Dallas composer and musician, Roger Boykin. The event features four young string players from Dallas-Fort Worth, all of whom are former students at the Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts where Boykin taught for 16 years.

The compositions to be performed were composed by Boykin from March 2020 through December 2022 when the world was gripped by the Covid-19 pandemic, which limited public performances by musicians and artists worldwide. Boykin turned his talents to composing music rather than playing music. He composed more than 40 string quartets during the three years of Covid 19. A number of these will be performed by the quartet on this occasion, followed by a set of jazz standards featuring Boykin’s trio.
