The Telegraph Quartet will perform at Summer Music from Greensboro on July 18th, 2017

On July 18th, we will present the exceptional Telegraph Quartet from San Francisco.

Described by the San Francisco Chronicle as “powerfully adept … with a combination of brilliance and subtlety” and as an “incredibly valuable addition to the cultural landscape,” the Telegraph Quartet is committed to bringing chamber music “off the stage and into the audience” — which objective aligns perfectly with SMfG’s goals for our summer concert series.

Telegraph Quartet violinist Joseph Mail recently commented: “Chamber music — and the string quartet in particular — offers a unique quality for audiences to wrap their mind around… To me, a string quartet is an intimate experience — a personal experience. There’s something really important for people to experience not just what it sounds like, but how it looks — what’s the drama of our relationship with each other.”
