CAG’s Artist of the Month…get to know more about
the Verona Quartet
There have been big changes for the Verona Quartet this summer, as the ensemble welcomes new cellist Jonathan Dormand and makes the move to Boston to begin the Professional String Quartet Training Program at New England Conservatory, a two-year residency program. The quartet’s summer has been jam-packed with performances, and September is no exception! After two performances at Gretna Music in Pennsylvania on September 10 and 11 (the first featuring two Mozart Church Sonatas for Organ and String Quartet with organist Ryan Brunkhurst), the ensemble travels to Colorado for the Alpenglow Chamber Music Festival from September 12-16, performing works including Dvořák’s Piano Quintet, Telemann’s Concerto for Four Violins in G, Mozart’s Viola Quintet K. 516, and Mendelssohn’s Octet in mixed ensembles. From Alpenglow it’s straight to Vancouver to perform in the Vancouver Recital Society‘s season opening concert on September 17, and then several days in residency at Pro Musica in Joplin, MO, including educational outreach events and a concert on September 21. Phew!
