Haven String Quartet show rescheduled to Wed., May 21

HSQ_7331_WebRenovations, remodeling—they always take longer than you expect. We had hopes that our new Performance Space would be ready for next Wednesday’s scheduled concert by Haven String Quartet. But it’s now clear that it makes much more sense to reschedule this show to Wednesday, May 21. The cover will be $5 and the group will play at 8 PM.

We appreciate Music Haven’s and Haven String Quartet’s understanding and willingness to reschedule this show.

As the permanent quartet-in-residence of Music Haven, the Haven String Quartet’s mission is to integrate music and creative endeavor into community life. The quartet provides access to free music education and world-class chamber music performances to residents in New Haven’s most under-served neighborhoods. In conjunction with these activities, the Haven String Quartet actively performs in other communities, providing engaging performances in traditional concert halls and reaching new audiences in non-classical venues.

Each quartet member is an exemplary performer who also enjoys the work of a teaching artist. They have graduated from such institutions as Yale University, Juilliard School, New England Conservatory and Northwestern University and enjoy successful careers as performers and teachers.

Yaira Matyakubova and Gregory Tompkins are the Quartet’s resident violinists. Colin Benn and Philip Boulanger, respectively, are resident violist and resident cellist for the Haven String Quartet.
