Young Concert Artists: Omer Quartet

Tuesday | December 11 2018 | 7:30 pm


“The Omer Quartet played as if the ink were still wet on the page. The Quartet made it seem as if Haydn was not some bust on the piano, but a living, breathing composer. ...[It was an] invigorating interpretation, [played] with a sense of discovery and adventure, but also with considerable finesse.”    - San Diego Union Tribune

HAYDN  -  String Quartet in E-flat major, Op. 20, No. 1

Distinctive among today’s young string quartets, the Omer Quartet captured the Gold Medal at the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition in Indiana. Upon winning the 2017 Young Concert Artists International Auditions, they also captured four performance prizes: concerts at Rockefeller University, Tryon Concert Association in North Carolina, as well as the Buffalo Chamber Music Society and Hayden's Ferry Chamber Music Series (Arizona). Committed to community engagement, they have received a Tarisio Trust Young Artists Grant to inaugurate a Music for Food series in Washington, D.C.
