ProQuartet Fundraising Concert

Leichhardt , Address provided on booking

The Geist String Quartet has been selected to attend the ProQuartet Professional Training Academy with violinist Oliver Wille of the Kuss Quartet. The Academy is located in Provence, France, where we will spend a week in August. Oliver Wille has consistently been an inspiring and nurturing mentor, and has provided ongoing support to our development as a quartet. We will greatly benefit from the opportunity to continue this relationship, working closely with Wille on some of the most important repertoire in the string quartet canon: both Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 13 in B-flat major, Op. 130 and the Grosse Fuge Op. 133, Schubert’s String Quartet No. 15 in G D. 887, and Haydn’s String Quartet in B minor, Op. 33 No. 1.

All donations to the Geist String Quartet will go directly toward the many costs associated with international travel to the summer course: airfares, course fees, regional transport, and accommodation.
