Doors Open: 7:00 PM
The Rolston Quartet including Luri Lee on Violin, Jeffrey Dyrda on Violin, Hezekiah Leung on Viola, and Jonathan Lo on Cello, is the Yale School of Music’s fellowship quartet-in-residence.
In 2016, the Rolston String Quartet was named among the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s 2016 “30 Hot Canadian Classical Musicians Under 30.” Recently, Musical Toronto said, “they performed with a maturity and cohesion rivaling the best string quartets in the world.” A winner of Astral’s 2016 National Auditions, the quartet was also the Grand Prize winner of the 31st Chamber Music Yellow Springs Competition, as well as prizewinners at the inaugural M-Prize competition (2016) and the 2016 Bordeaux International String Quartet Competition.
On the heels of their Banff win, the Rolstons immediately embarked upon the Competition’s tour in the 2016-2017 season, taking them to Germany, Italy, Austria, Canada, and United States.
In the 2017-2018 season, they will perform throughout Canada, United States, Europe, and Israel. Highlights include appearances in such venues as the Smithsonian, Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Koerner Hall at the Toronto Royal Conservatory of Music, and the Esterhazy Palace.
The Academy Center of the Arts is excited to partner with Forte Chamber Music to bring Lynchburg this exciting event.
