Concert features adventurous program

The Howland Chamber Music Circle will present a return engagement of the Voxare String Quartet in a concert of music spanning five centuries.

Voxare’s performances have included appearances at Avery Fisher Hall with the New York Philharmonic, the Guggenheim Museum and Carnegie Hall. The quartet has had performing residencies at Dartmouth College and Columbia University among others; Voxare has also been the quartet-in-residence at New York’s Bargemusic, was featured live on Soundcheck WNYC and had its concerts broadcast on WQXR. Voxare’s performances earned the quartet Chamber Music America’s 2010 ASCAP Award for Adventurous Programming.

For their concert at the Howland Center, the members of the quartet have chosen to play J. S. Bach’s Concerto in D Minor for Two Violins (arranged for string quartet), Arab-American composer Mohammed Fairouz’s The Named Angels, and Felix Mendelsohn’s String Quartet, Opus 13.

The concert will take place Sunday, March 30, at 4 p.m. at the Howland Cultural Center, 477 Main St., Beacon, and will be followed by a reception to meet the artists.

Tickets at $30 ($10 for students) can be reserved by calling 845-297-9243 or at where further information on this and other presentations by the Chamber Music Circle can be found.
