Tesla Quartet (2019)

The Tesla Quartet has a "superb capacity to find the inner heart of everything they play, regardless of era, style or technical demand." —The International Review of Music

"We are held together, like the stars in the firmament, with ties inseparable. These ties cannot be seen, but we can feel them.” Inspired by Nikola Tesla's words, the Tesla Quartet seeks to make music the binding force that unites audiences with colorful and intimate renditions of both new and established repertoire.

Tesla Quartet members: Ross Snyder and Michelle Lie, violins; Edwin Kaplan, viola; and Serafim Smigelskiy, cello.

Performance dates and times: 

Sunday, Nov. 10, 4 p.m.
