Quartet performs in Peterborough Saturday

PETERBOROUGH – The Apple Hill String Quartet will perform their third annual Music in Bass Hall concert at the Monadnock Center for History and Culture in Peterborough on Saturday, April 25.

Joined by guest artist Peggy Pearson, the group will perform the world premiere of a new quartet for oboe and strings by James Primosch, an exquisite arrangement of Haydn’s Symphony #97 for oboe and strings, concluding with the A minor string quartet of Brahms.

The Apple Hill String Quartet has earned accolades from around the world for their interpretive mastery of such traditional repertoire as Haydn, Mozart, Schubert, Schumann, Beethoven, and Ravel, along with their special dedication to seldom heard masterworks and contemporary music. They have performed concerts extensively throughout the United States, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia as part of Apple Hill’s innovative Playing for Peace program. Recent concert appearances have been in New York and Los Angeles.

The quartet is comprised of Elise Kuder and Colleen Jennings, violins, Michael Kelley, viola, and Rupert Thompson, violoncello.

The concert starts at 7:30. Admission is $15 ($12 for seniors, students, and members of the Monadnock Center). Reservations may be made by phone at 924-3235, or purchased through the Monadnock Center web site, monadnockcenter.org.
