Music on the Brandywine

Enjoy a delightful night of music with the Vera String Quartet, appearing courtesy of Astral Artists. Since its formation in 2015, the Vera Quartet has quickly established itself as one of the most exciting ensembles of its generation. A winner of Astral’s 2018 National Auditions, the Quartet also won Second Prize at the 2017 M-Prize Chamber Arts Competition as well as the St. Lawrence Award at the 2018 Wigmore Hall String Quartet Competition. With its members hailing from Spain, Cuba and the U.S., the ensemble shares a deep commitment to exploring and programming the music of its roots along with the great masterworks of the string quartet repertoire. Museum opens at 6 p.m.; performance begins at 7 p.m. Cash bar and lite fare will be available. The Vera Quartet appears courtesy of Astral.
