Bergamot Quartet

Date:  

November 12, 2023, 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Location: Earl and Darielle Linehan Concert Hall

Four women smile and talk against an outdoor background

The Bergamot Quartet is fueled by a passion for exploring and advocating for the music of living composers, continually expanding the limits of the string quartet’s rich tradition in western classical music. With a priority given to music by women, they aim to place this new, genre-bending music in meaningful dialogue with the histories that precede it with creative programming, community-oriented audience building, and frequent commissioning.

The ensemble comprises Ledah Finck and Sarah Thomas, violins; Amy Tan, viola; and Irène Han, cello. Founded at the Peabody Institute in Baltimore in 2016, Bergamot Quartet is based in New York City and was the Graduate String Quartet in Residence at the Mannes School of Music for 2020–2022.

Their program will feature several recently composed works for string quartet:

  • Nicky Sohn: Fortunes Unfolded
  • Ledah Finck: Division of Knowledge
  • Caroline Shaw: Plan and Elevation
  • Aleksandra Vrebalov: My Desert, My Rose
  • Six premieres by UMBC student composers Pam Voulalas-Depireux, Aaron Statham, Sarah Yuran, Nicholas Merdon, Jack McGrath, and Valarous Lingham

$15 general admission, $10 seniors, $5 students. Please visit here to reserve seats.
