Fine Arts Quartet
The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Peck School of the Arts is excited to announce the Fine Arts Quartet 2013-14 season. Enjoy four concerts from "one of the gold-plated names in chamber music" (Washington Post) for only $10 per ticket ($5 per ticket for students).
The Fine Arts Quartet ranks among the most distinguished ensembles of our time, with an illustrious history of performing success and an extensive recording legacy. Founded in Chicago in 1946, and based at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee since 1963, the Quartet is one of the elite few to have recorded and toured internationally for over half a century. Each season, violinists Ralph Evans and Efim Boico (who have been playing together nearly 30 years), violist Nicolò Eugelmi, and cellist Robert Cohen perform worldwide in such cities as New York, London, Paris, Berlin, Rome, Madrid, Moscow, Tokyo, Beijing, Istanbul, Jerusalem, Mexico City, and Toronto.
