Hailed by The New York Times as an “outstanding ensemble of young musicians”, the Verona Quartet is a winner of the 2015 Concert Artists Guild Competition, and in just three years, has earned a stellar reputation for delivering a “sensational, powerhouse performance” (Classical Voice America) every time they take the stage. Musical America recently selected the group as “New Artists of the Month” for May 2016, further setting the Verona Quartet apart as one of the most compelling young quartets in chamber music.

We will use some class time to research the members of this group and learn more about their musical preferences before we attend their presentation. This will certainly foster an appreciation for the talent when we see them in person. Additionally, we may have an opportunity to greet the artists with handshakes and share our appreciation directly with them.
Whenever the real world enters our school, I want my students to encounter it with all the authenticity we can.
