Celebrate the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth with an evening of string quartets performed by the critically acclaimed Formosa Quartet. Program to feature Quartets Opus 18, Number 6 and Opus 132.

“A marvelously elegant performance full of youthful freshness and exuberance… spellbinding virtuosity.”
— BBC Music Magazine

The members of Formosa Quartet – Jasmine Lin, Wayne Lee, Che-Yen Chen and Deborah Pae – have established themselves as leading solo, chamber and orchestral musicians. With degrees from the Juilliard School, Curtis Institute of Music and New England Conservatory, they have performed in major venues throughout the United States, Asia and Europe and have been top prizewinners in prestigious competitions such as the Paganini, Primrose, Fischoff, Naumburg and Tertis competitions. As chamber musicians, they have appeared regularly at the Marlboro, Kingston, Santa Fe and Ravinia festivals, as well as at the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, La Jolla Summerfest and the Seattle Chamber Music Society.

A lecture on Beethoven will be presented by Dr. Paul Christiansen before the intermission.

Presented by the Seton Hall University Arts Council & the College of Communication and the Arts as part of their Classical Concert Series.
