Pyxis Piano Quartet, now in its tenth season as artists in residence at the Delaware Art Museum, regularly responds to events and issues through interpretive chamber music, combining classical music with social justice.

On Sept. 27, the quartet will respond to Wilmington 1968, the Art Museum’s observation of the city’s 1968 unrest and military occupation.

Specifically, the concert will be a response to Black Survival Guide, or How to Live Through a Police Riota series commissioned by the Delaware Art Museum from artist Hank Willis.

The concert will take place at the Delaware Art Museum Sept. 27 at 7:30 p.m., and will include a talk by curator Margaret Winslow.

Tickets are $35 ($30 for museum members) and $25 for students.
