Chamber Music Master Class with Vega String Quartet
Monday, September 25, 2017 - 5:00pm
The Vega String Quartet, Quartet-in-Residence at Emory University, is cultivating a new generation of chamber music lovers through dynamic performances and innovative community engagement. The New York Times raved that "[the Quartet's] playing had a kind of clean intoxication to it, pulling the listener along...the musicians took real risks in their music making" and the L.A. Times praised their "triumphant L.A. debut." They concertize both nationally and internationally, most recently in Baltimore, Chicago, Nashville, Sacramento, Berlin, San Miguel, and the Brahmssaal in Vienna's Musikverein. The Vega Quartet has won numerous international awards, including at the Bordeaux String Quartet Competition, as well as top prizes from the Coleman Chamber Ensemble Competition, the Carmel Chamber Music Competition, and the National Society of Arts and Letters String Quartet Competition. They tour throughout Asia, Europe and North America and have appeared at Weill Hall and Zankel Hall at Carnegie Hall, Bargemusic, and Duke Hall at the Royal Academy of Music, London. The Vega String Quartet is Elizabeth Fayette and Jessica Shuang Wu, violins; Yinzi Kong, viola; Guang Wang, cello. This master class is free and open to the public.
