‘Beyond Their Years’ caps Chiara Quartet’s season
The Chiara String Quartet will close the 2016-2017 Hixson-Lied Concert Series with a 7:30 p.m. March 29 performance in Kimball Recital Hall.
The program, “Beyond Their Years,” will feature the mature younger voices in Felix Mendelssohn’s String Quartet in A minor, Op. 13. The composition was written when Mendelssohn was only 18 years old. The concert will also feature Franz Schubert’s Cello Quintet with cellist Jennifer Son, the student winner of the 2017 Play with the Chiaras competition.
Tickets, available at the door, online or by calling 402-472-4747, are $20 general admission, $10 for senior citizens and $5 for students.
The Chiara String Quartet includes Rebecca Fischer and Hyeyung Julie Yoon on violins, Jonah Sirota on viola, and Gregory Beaver on cello. The quartet is the Hixson-Lied Artists-In-Residence in the Glenn Korff School of Music. They were the Blodgett Artists-in-Residence at Harvard University from 2008-2014, and during the 2015-2016 season, the Chiara was the quartet-in-residence at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
