The Verona Quartet

Hailed as “thoughtful, impressive musicians” (Cleveland Classical), the Verona Quartet – Jonathan Ong, violin, Dorothy Ro, violin, Abigail Rojansky, viola and Warren Hagerty, cello – is winner of the 2015 Concert Artists Guild Competition, along with several other international prizes. The Verona has performed across four continents in venues such as Wigmore Hall in London, Izumi Hall in Osaka, and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington. They are currently Graduate Resident String Quartet at The Juilliard School, where they work closely with members of the Juilliard String Quartet.

The Verona is among the best young quartets now emerging in what has been called a “golden age” of chamber music. Since the Juilliard Quartet burst on the scene 75 years ago, string quartet playing has grown steadily in popularity and quality to its current remarkable artistic and technical peak. Perhaps the single greatest repertoire in classical music, quartets by the greatest composers are the core of string quartet programs. In their concerts at Electric Earth the Verona will present several acknowledged masterworks:

The program on March 25 at the First Church in Jaffrey will include Felix Mendelssohn’s Quartet Op. 44  No. 2, Anton Webern’s “Six Bagatelles”, and Béla Bartók’s Quartet No. 5.

The program on March 26 at La Belle Winery in Amherst will include Josef Haydn’s Quartet Op. 50, No 1 &Mendelssohn’s Quartet Op. 44  No. 2.
