Event Description

The Fine Arts Quartet will perform at Herkimer County Community College. The concert is part of Fall Fest & Alumni Weekend and is open to the public free of charge.

The Fine Arts Quartet, "one of the gold-plated names in chamber music" (Washington Post), ranks among the most distinguished ensembles of our time, with an illustrious history of performing success and an extensive recording legacy. Founded in Chicago in 1946, and based at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee since 1963, the Quartet is one of the elite few to have recorded and toured internationally for over half a century. Each season, violinists Ralph Evans and Efim Boico (who have been playing together nearly 30 years), violist Nicolò Eugelmi, and cellist Robert Cohen perform worldwide in such cities as New York, London, Paris, Berlin, Rome, Madrid, Moscow, Tokyo, Beijing, Istanbul, Jerusalem, Mexico City, and Toronto.

The Robert H. Wood Great Artists Series is the result of a generous endowment made by the late Robert H. Wood, a long-time resident of Ilion, NY. The Robert H. Wood Great Artists Series sponsors regular classical music performances at HCCC to allow residents of all ages to enjoy high-caliber music and artists.
