Blue Hill Concert Association presents the Verona Quartet

BLUE HILL – The Blue Hill Concert Association is delighted to announce the final concert of its annual winter season. The Verona Quartet will perform at 3 p.m. on Sunday, March 20 at First Congregational Church in Blue Hill. This acclaimed ensemble has firmly established itself as one of the most distinguished quartets on the music scene today. Jonathan Ong-violin, Dorothy Ro-violin, Abigail Rojansky-viola and Jonathan Dormond-cello, will perform Quartettsatz by Franz Schubert, Leyendas 2001 by Gabriela Lena-Frank: An Andean Walkabout, and one of the last string quartets by Ludwig van Beethoven, No.14, op. 131. A fitting conclusion to an almost complete season.

The Verona Quartet recently won Chamber Music America’s coveted Cleveland Quartet Award. They are also laureates of the Wigmore Hall (UK), the M-Prize in Melbourne 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 is on the faculty of Oberlin College and Conservatory as a Quartet in Residence.

In keeping with the Concert Association‘s longstanding commitment to education, the Verona Quartet will perform at George Stevens Academy on Monday, March 21.

Tickets for this exceptional concert are $30, available online. Everyone 21 and under is admitted free. For more information, visit www.bluehillconcertassociation.org.
