Flamenco Quartet is a project dedicated to exploring new exponents of flamenco. Led by an open minded spirit the ensemble seeks to engage with contemporary culture through vibrant performances that honor traditional flamenco and their shared passion for music and dance discovery. Their roster boasts remarkably diverse talents, including composers, arrangers, improvisers and choreographers who bring a range of cultural influences to the group, from Gypsy jazz to klezmer to flamenco and classical Arabic and Spanish.

The group consists of nationally and internationally renowned artists, including  Steve Gibons (violin), Marija Temo (guitar/singer), Wendy Clinard (dancer), and (percussionist).

Of Clinard Dance, Time-Out Chicago has said “[it's] exemplary of how live performance can act as connective tissue between people of divergent experience.” In fact, it is Clinard’s mission to unite people from a diverse range of artistic disciplines and cultural backgrounds, pioneering a unique approach to contemporary and American-style flamenco.
