The Daedalus Quartet will perform at 8 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 7, as part of the 2003-2004 Evergreen Concert Series in the Carriage House at Evergreen, 4545 N. Charles St. in Baltimore.
It is the second of this season's four Friday evening concerts honoring former Evergreen resident Alice Warder Garrett's tradition of bringing talented musicians to Baltimore and inviting audiences to interact with them. Since the inception of the concert series in 1954, the Evergreen House Foundation has brought more than 189 emerging ensembles to Evergreen in celebration of Garrett's contribution to the arts.
The quartet is one of America's outstanding young string quartets, having won the grand prize and sweeping all the special prizes at the 2001 Banff International String Quartet Competition. During the 2002-2003 season, the Daedalus Quartet performed coast-to-coast in Canada, including major series in Montreal, Toronto, Ottowa, Calgary, Winnipeg and Vancouver, as well as in Japan.
Daedalus has coached with Donald Weilerstein and Peter Salaff of the Cleveland Quartet. Its members hold degrees from The Juilliard School, the Curtis Institute of Music, the Cleveland Institute and Harvard University. The group is made up of Kyu-Young Kim and Min-Young Kim, brother and sister violinists who alternate on first violin; cellist Raman Ramakirshnan; and violist Jessica Thompson. The quartet's performance at Evergreen will include works by Beethoven and Hindemith.
Tickets are $15 per person. Admission includes a reception with the artists after the performance. For ticket information or reservations, call (410) 516-0341. Visit Evergreen House online at www.jhu.edu/historichouses.
