Daedalus Quartet will perform on April 7

Hear the Daedalus Quartet perform a free concert on Monday, April 7, at 7:30 p.m. at Christ United Methodist Church, 410 N Holden Road. This performance is sponsored by the UNCG School of Music, Theatre and Dance.

Over the course of their 13 years together, the Daedalus Quartet has established themselves as a leader among the new generation of string ensembles. Though steeped in the traditional literature of Haydn, Beethoven, and Mendelssohn, they have also won acclaim

for their adventurous exploration of contemporary music. On April 7, the Daedalus Quartet will present a program of challenging, modernist works from three centuries.

The concert is made possible through generous support from the Anglo-American Composers Performance Grants of the Christopher C. and Laura B. Tew Legacy Fund.
