For over four decades the Chilingirian String Quartet has thrilled critics and audiences around the world with its vibrant, virtuosic performances of classical and contemporary chamber music. Theirs is a sound that is both powerful and precise, richly interpretive and yet always true to the composer’s vision. “One of the great string quartets of our day” (The Boston Globe), this ensemble continues to nurture new generations of gifted musicians as the Quartet-in-Residence at London’s Royal College of Music. For this concert, the Chilingirian Quartet will be joined by the celebrated Armenian pianist and composer Karen Hakobyan.

Co-sponsored with the Fresno State Armenian Studies Program and the Orpheus Chamber Music Ensemble.
