Bohemian Quartet Concert Text Size

Event takes place on May 16, 2015 at 7:30 PM
Wistariahurst Museum, 238 Cabot Street, Holyoke

A performance by Bohemian Quartet is a journey through musical vernacular of gypsy life, with fast tempos, virtuosic playing, spry strings crying and dancing, and above all flair of performance that makes this sound so utterly riveting. This acclaimed Providence, Rhode Island-based ensemble-featuring violin, viola, cello, and bass specializes in music of the Romany or “Gypsy” tradition, along with related Eastern European folk styles.

Violinist, Stan Renard, a composer and virtuoso player with an impressive list of credentials, assembled the group with the idea of preserving the tradition and indulging in the virtuosic playing of classic gypsy music. Renard recruited like-minded friends: Dave Zinno on upright bass, Christine Harrington on cello, and Nancy Richardson on viola.

The performance will be preceded by a presentation by the quartet. The presentation will start at 7:00 p.m.
