The Grand County Concert Series will welcome the Miami String Quartet for its 15th season on Friday, Feb. 9.

The Grand County Concert Series continues its 15th season with Miami String Quartet. Praised in The New York Times as having "everything one wants in a quartet: a rich, precisely balanced sound, a broad coloristic palette, real unity of interpretive purpose and seemingly unflagging energy," the Miami String Quartet has established its place among the most widely respected quartets in America.

For over 20 years, their diversity in programming, poise in performance, keen sense of ensemble and impeccable musicality has made the Miami String Quartet one of the most sought after quartets in chamber music today.

The Miami String Quartet has appeared extensively throughout the United States and Europe. Highlights of recent seasons include performances in New York at Lincoln Center's Alice Tully Hall and the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., as well as engagements in Boston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, New Orleans, San Francisco, Seattle, St. Paul, and its own concert series in Palm Beach, Florida. International highlights include appearances in Bern, Cologne, Amsterdam's Concertgebouw, Istanbul, Lausanne, Montreal, Rio de Janeiro, Hong Kong, Taipei, and Paris. The Quartet has recently toured with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center and they perform frequently for the Philadelphia Chamber Music Society.

Miami String Quartet's program on Feb. 9 will include works for the string quartet spanning the centuries from W.A. Mozart to Dmitri Shostakovich, concluding with Felix Mendelssohn. This promises to be a concert to charm the hearts of all string lovers.

"String Quartets are some of my favorites, the emotion the sound evokes pulls the listener from happy, to sad, and sometimes uneasy," said Shanna Ganne, GCCS executive director. "It is often an amazing experience. Don't miss out on this performance with Miami String Quartet, they are sheer perfection."
