Verona Quartet

Friday, October 6, 2017

Our season opens with a young quartet specially chosen by three HCMS board members who were awed by their impressive performance at the Banff International String Quartet Competition. Winners of the 2015 Concert Artists Guild Competition and having just finished their quartet program residency at the Juilliard School, the quartet performed across the U.S. and Canada last year at venues as prestigious as Carnegie Hall and Alice Tully Hall. It’s an honor for us to host their Hawai‘i debut.
