Grammy Award-nominated string quartet performs Mendelssohn, Shostakovich and Debussy
Grammy Award-nominated Chiara String Quartet will open the 17th season of the Guest Concert Series, Sunday afternoons at Dominican University of California at Angelico Hall.
The Chiara String Quartet — violinists Rebecca Fischer and Hyeyung Julie Moon, cellist Gregory Beaver, and violist Jonah Sirota – make their Angelico Concert Hall debut.
Described by the Boston Globe as “highly virtuosic, edge-of-the-seat playing,” the Chiara String Quartet has played in major concert halls, music festivals, and academic institutions across the country. The musicians perform their entire program by memory, which is highly usual and challenging.
They are currently the Artists-in-Residence at the Glenn Kortt School of Music at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln after being Artists-In-Residence at Harvard University from 2008-2014.
Mendelssohn – String Quartet in A Minor, Op.13
Shostakovich – String Quartet No. 8 in C Minor, Op. 110
