Friends of Chamber Music presents Viano Quartet
A world-renowned string quartet will perform in a free show on Thursday, November 17, at A&M United Methodist Church.
COLLEGE STATION, Texas (KBTX) - A world-renowned string quartet will perform Thursday, November 17, at A&M United Methodist Church.
Viano String Quartet, winners of the 2019 Banff International String Quartet Competition, is scheduled to perform a free concert, their first time ever in the Brazos Valley.
“We have three pieces we’re preparing,” member Hao Zhou said. “The first is a piece by (Joseph) Haydn, the father of the string quartet. Then we’ll move on to a really romantic piece by Schumann, then after intermission a piece by Tchaikovsky.”
The group was put together in 2015 by faculty for a music chamber class at the Colburn Conservatory of Music in Los Angeles, they have been playing together since.
The group performed at a meet and greet Wednesday evening in College Station.
“To be able to take our music on the road and share it around the world is, it’s really been a privilege and we couldn’t be happier about it,” Zhou said.
