Fresh from their recent tour of Peru, the Apple Hill String Quartet returns to Bass Hall in a program shared with Peruvian pianist Myriam Avalos Teie. The concert, on Saturday, May 6 at 7:30 p.m., starts with short pieces by Bach, Ginestera, Albeniz, and Tom Oboe Lee, and ends with the magnificent Quintet for Piano and String Quartet by Edward Elgar.

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 and for 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.

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