Free Young Persons' Concert - Voxare String Quartet
Pequot Library
Saturday, January 07, 2012, 02:00pm - 03:00pm

Music for Youth and Pequot Library present the Voxare Quartet.

The Voxare Quartet -- Emily Ondracek-Peterson, violin; Galina Zhdanova, violin; Erik Peterson, viola; Adrian Daurov, cello – is half Russian, half Chicagoan, 100% Juilliardian and 400% blessed with great instrumental skills” pronounces Concertonet. The Voxare String Quartet was formed in 2008 and ever since has been praised for its adventurous programming, technical prowess and passionate performances. The New York Times on numerous occasions has chosen Voxare as its Classical Pick of the Week. Voxare has been quartet-in-residence and a frequent performer at Bargemusic on the waterfront in Brooklyn. Voxare currently performs works by living composers at its residency series at Columbia University and will be quartet-in-residence at Dartmouth College this coming season. Future season highlights include a month-long tour of the UK.
Individually, the Voxare musicians have performed with the Chicago Symphony, the Cleveland Orchestra, the Milwaukee Symphony and the St. Petersburg Philharmonic and have amassed a
number of prizes at international competitions. In addition to performing the standard quartet repertoire, Voxare encourages interest in contemporary music and often works with leading composers such as Pulitzer Prize winners Ned Rorem and David Del Tredici. Ned Rorem asserts that “the Voxare Quartet is probably the best American chamber group performing today, and Del Tredici writes that “the Voxare is perhaps the most brilliant ensemble I have encountered in years . . . and they are all still so young!”

Voxare loves working with young audiences. Of special interest to the Music for Youth program, Emily Ondracek, first violinist, is a New York Philharmonic Teaching Artist and a Morse Teaching Fellow through Juilliard.

Master classes will be offered in violin, viola and cello. To register for master classes, call 203-938-3843 or e-mail
