On Thursday, November 15 at 8 pm in Temple Ohev Sholom the UK-based Doric String Quartet will perform a program of rarely heard string quartets by Schumann and Chausson as well as one of the most celebrated late string quartets by Beethoven, op.131. At the opening of this concert Market Square Concerts will present a young cellist, Julia Rosenbaum, winner of the Harrisburg Symphony “Rising Stars” competition in a short performance as a part of Young Artist Program, which will include performances by talented young musicians at the opening of three concerts in the 2012-13 season.
Described by Gramophone Magazine as ‘one of the finest young string quartets’, whose members are ‘musicians with fascinating things to say’ the Doric String Quartet has received glowing responses from audiences and critics across the globe. In 2008 the Quartet won 1st prize in the Osaka International Chamber Music Competition in Japan, 2nd prize at the Premio Paolo Borciani International String Quartet Competition in Italy and the Ensemble Prize at the Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern in Germany.
In autumn 2010 the Quartet made their highly acclaimed American debut with recitals at the Frick Museum in New York and Library of Congress in Washington. Further afield they have toured to Japan, Israel, Australia and New Zealand.
