Chiara String Quartet
"The Chiara Quartet gave these works luminous performances, underlining the sweet-toned character of Ms. Frank's score and the mystery and exoticism of Mr. Zhou's work. But the best performances were searing accounts of the Bartok and Golijov pieces, for which the players produced a tone that ranged from glowing warmth to hard-edged acerbity, which each of these searing works demands."

-- New York Times

We will be treated to a West Coast premiere by Ms. Frank, mentioned above, which she specifically wrote for the Chiara String Quartet.  After completing a grueling tour in the past year, studying and performing all of the Beethoven Quartets, they will bring their favorites with them to accompany the Frank piece.  This culmination of what has been performed to expert levels in the recent past, along with a brand new composition, will create a unique and exciting evening with a group that has done ground-breaking work by bringing classical music "to any chamber."

Playing "Chamber Music in Any Chamber," the Chiara String Quartet (Rebecca Fischer, Julie Yoon violin; Jonah Sirota, viola; Gregory Beaver, cello) reaches from the concert hall into clubs, bars and galleries, expanding the places to hear live classical music while returning chamber music to its roots in intimate spaces. Described by the "Seattle Post-Intelligencer" as "vastly talented, vastly resourceful, and vastly committed to the music of their time," the Chiara is also continually finding new meaning within pieces from the well-established quartet canon. Their style is best described as a nonstop journey to the edge of expressive possibility: "luminous," "searing," ("New York Times") "soulful," "biting," and possessing a "potent collective force" ("Strings Magazine").

The Chiara Quartet was recently named the Blodgett Artists-in-Residence at Harvard University, a post they begin in the fall of 2008, in addition to their ongoing artist residency at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Recently awarded with the Guarneri Quartet Residency Award for artistic excellence by Chamber Music America, the Quartet's other honors include a top prize at the Paolo Borciani International Competition, winning the Astral Artistic Services National Audition, and winning First Prize at the Fischoff Chamber Music Competition.
