Chamber Music students perform for Duke Clinical Research Institute annual luncheon
Thursday, June 16, 2016
A string quartet from the Chamber Music program provided music for the Duke Clinical Research Institute's annual luncheon.
The audience was thrilled with the Duke student musicians:
"I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the Duke students’ performance. That first piece was quite intricate and required so much coordination. I was mesmerized as they performed it! The second number made my heart dance. What talent! Those young people are super stars."
"The students who performed the classical music transported me to another place. It was incredibly beautiful. A few notes actually brought me to tears. Such beauty stirs the heart. It was an amazing feeling.... I will now be a huge chamber music fan. They are pure talent. Please let me when and where they will be performing again. I would love to hear them again and again. They clearly have a great instructor."
"I was blown away by those four students. First of all, they are so intelligent with those majors. And can they ever play music. Wow! That was the most inspiring thing I’ve heard and witnessed. I was close enough to see them play each note. I have a new appreciation or string instruments. Several of us said we are now going to get our kids to take lessons."
Opportunities exist for students in the Chamber Music program to perform outside of Music Department recitals, both at Duke events like this one and in the Durham community.
