Juilliard String Quartet at Bard

The Hudson Valley Chamber Music Circle’s recently announced 2017 June Concert Series is a dazzler. It begins on Saturday, June 3 with the esteemed Juilliard String Quartet performing Béla Bartók’s String Quartet No. 1 and Beethoven’s epic String Quartet in B-flat major, Op. 130 with Grosse Fuge.

Founded in 1946, the ever-evolving Juilliard String Quartet has become known as the “quintessential American string quartet.” The current quartet features Joseph Lin and Ronald Copes on violin, Roger Tapping on viola and Astrid Schween on cello. The June 3 performance takes place at 8 p.m. in Bard College’s Olin Hall. Tickets cost $30 general admission, $5 for students and $70 for all three June concerts.
