BLUE HILL – The Blue Hill Concert Association is excited to announce the final concert of their annual winter season. The Verona Quartet will perform at 3 p.m. on Sunday, March 20 at The First Congregational Church in Blue Hill. This acclaimed ensemble has firmly established itself among the most distinguished quartets on the music scene today. Jonathan Ong- violin, Dorothy Ro-violin, Abigail Rojansky-viola, and Jonathan Dormond-cello, will be performing Franz Schubert’s Quartettsatz, Gabriela Lena-Frank’s 2001 Leyendas: An Andean Walkabout, and one of Ludwig van Beethoven’s last string quartets, No.14, Op. 131. A fitting conclusion to an almost sold out season.
The Verona Quartet recently earned Chamber Music America’s coveted Cleveland Quartet award. They are also top prize winners at Wigmore Hall (UK), the Melbourne M-Prize, and the Osaka International Chamber Music Competition. The New York Times called them “an outstanding ensemble … cohesive, yet full of temperament, vibrant and intelligent”. The Quartet serves on the faculty of the Oberlin College and Conservatory as Quartet-in-Residence.
In keeping with the Concert Association’s long time commitment to education, The Verona Quartet will be performing at George Stevens Academy on Monday, March 21.
Tickets for this outstanding concert are $30, available online. All those 21 and under are admitted free of charge. For more information go to www.bluehillconcertassociation.org.
