Archives

Morganton, N.C. – The Western Piedmont Foundation (WPF) will host the Tesla Quartet, resident quartet with the Western Piedmont Symphony, for a free performance open to the public on Thursday, April 14 at 9:30 A.M. in Leviton Auditorium located in Moore Hall on the campus of Western Piedmont Community College.

Winner of the Gold Medal at the 2012 Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition, a prizewinner in the 2012 London International String Quartet Competition and a winner at the 2013 Bordeaux International String Quartet Competition, the Tesla Quartet was formed at The Juilliard School in 2008 and quickly established itself as one of the most promising young ensembles in New York, winning second prize at the J.C. Arriaga Chamber Music Competition only a few months after its inception.

The quartet has enjoyed a busy performing schedule, both in the United States and abroad, with appearances in Austria, England and France. Community involvement and outreach are integral parts of the Tesla Quartet’s mission, and the group has brought inspiring music to children’s hospitals, soup kitchens, libraries, retirement communities, and schools.

This concert is made possible by the support of generous donors to the WPF and is the result of a partnership between the Foundation and the Western Piedmont Symphony.
