Duets in Social Distance: Charlton Lee and Kathryn Bates

Following up on our successful poetry series From Collective Isolation, we present videos by five cohabitating couples, who are also musical collaborators, created during the COVID-19 pandemic. Some of our favorite artists from our Full series perform from home while sheltering in place, keeping us connected through music.

Violist Charlton Lee and cellist Kathryn Bates are members of the San Francisco based Del Sol String Quartet. The internationally acclaimed quartet is a leading force in twenty-first-century chamber music, championing music by living artists that explores aspects of social change, technology, and artistic innovation. Del Sol has premiered hundreds of works, released nine albums, and produces vibrant collaborations and educational experiences.
