Music and Message: The Verona Quartet

October 27, 2019 at 4:00pm5:00pm

Hendricks Chapel, Main Chapel

Hailed by The New York Times as “an outstanding ensemble,” the Verona String Quartet will open their Syracuse residency with works of Beethoven, Ravel, Schumann and the world premiere of “Variations on the Syracuse Alma Mater” by a collective of Syracuse University faculty and alumni composers. The quartet will be joined by the new director of the Setnor School of Music, pianist Milton Laufer.

The Verona Quartet is dedicated to showcasing the art form of the string quartet and to elevating their music making to convey the poetic narrative of storytelling. The Quartet’s members represent four different nations (USA, UK, Singapore and Canada), but their singular approach and unanimity of purpose in both musical and cultural cooperation has quickly earned the group a reputation for its “interpretive strength… robust characterization [and] commanding resonance” (Calgary Herald).

Join us as Hendricks Chapel unites the Malmgren Concert Series and Dean’s Convocation into a new weekly series that features musical performances and spoken reflection from a diversity of religious and spiritual perspectives. These inclusive gatherings bridge campus and community and seek to spark inspiration, peace and wellbeing for all.
