Piano Club presents Kona String Quartet

Concert Producer, Riderwood Piano Club

Young and immensely talented, the Kona String Quartet comes to Riderwood on Saturday, May 4, at 3:30 p.m. in the Chapel.

Two years ago, four students from three different schools in Montgomery County joined together to form a string quartet. From the start to the present, they have been coached by Holly Hamilton, former first violinist of the National Symphony Orchestra. She also tutors three of the students.

Will Joseloff, 14, violin, is currently Assistant Concertmaster of the Montgomery County Youth Orchestra Chamber Ensemble and has also performed with the Catholic University Orchestra.

Anh-Tuan Le, 16, violin, and his twin Anh-Tu Le, cello, play chamber music in the Maryland Classic Youth Orchestra.

Dana Wolpe, 16, viola, studies at the Peabody Institute and plays in the Borodin Sextet. This summer she will attend Indiana University’s Pre-College Strings Academy.

The group will be performing the complete Dvorak String Quartet No. 12 (the “American”), works of Scott Joplin, and a duet for violin and piano.

Tickets were sold on Monday and Tuesday, April 29 and 30, in all dining room lobbies, but any remaining tickets will be sold at the door.

Invite your family and friends to join you. Seldom do we get an opportunity to hear such talented and young musicians. Please lend your encouragement and support.
