Concert Series Finishes With String Quartet
Celebrating 30 years of presenting great chamber music in Moore County, the Classical Concert Series (CCS) final concert features the award-winning Modigliani String Quartet on Monday, March 26, at 8 p.m. at the Sunrise Theater in Southern Pines.
The Modigliani Quartet was formed in 2003 and first attracted international attention in 2004 by winning the Frits Philips String Quartet competition in Eindhoven. With its members, Phillipe Bernhard and Loic Rio on violins, Laurent Marfaing on viola, and Francois Kieffer on cello, the string quartet took first prize at the Vittorio Rimbotti competition in Florence in 2005 and won the highly prestigious Young Concert Artists Auditions in New York in 2006, allowing them to regularly tour in the U.S.
Having since become one of the world's most sought-after chamber ensembles, the group has performed in such prestigious venues as Vienna's Musikverein, Amsterdam's Concertgebouw, New York's Carnegie Hall, Washington, D.C.'s, Kennedy Center, and Tokyo's Kioi Hall.
The program they will perform includes J.C. Arriaga's "Quartet No. 3 in E-flat major," Ludwig van Beethoven's >"Quartet in F major, Op. 18, No. 1" and Alexander Borodin's "Quartet No. 2 in D major."
A few reserved seats still remain and are available at $25.
For tickets, visit the Arts Council of Moore County offices (Campbell House, 482 E. Connecticut Ave., Southern Pines) or call (910) 692-2787.
The Classical Concert Series is presented by the Arts Council of Moore County and is sponsored by The Jefferson Inn of Southern Pines.
