Saturday, February 29, 2020

11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Come meet the Parker String Quartet for some up-close music before their performance that night at Music@Amherst at 8 PM in Buckley Recital Hall at Amherst College.

FREE and open to the public. Parallel activities for wiggly kids (with a parent), so bring the whole family!

About the Parker String Quartet:
Inspiring performances, luminous sound, and exceptional musicianship are the hallmarks of the Grammy Award-winning Parker Quartet, who have begun its sixth year as faculty members of Harvard University’s Department of Music in the group’s role as Blodgett Artists-in-Residence.
The quartet features:
  • Daniel Chong, violin
  • Ken Hamao, violin
  • Jessica Bodner, viola
  • Kee-Hyun Kim, cello

This free event is possible thanks to a collaboration with the Music@Amherst Concert Series at Amherst College.
