Moody Music Building Concert Hall, University of Alabama
The Vega String Quartet, Quartet in Residence at Emory University, is creating and cultivating a new generation of passionate and educated chamber music lovers. The New York Times raved that their "playing that had a kind of clean intoxication to it, pulling the listener along...the musicians took real risks in their music making..." and the Los Angeles Times praised their "triumphant L.A. debut". The quartet has toured throughout Asia, Europe and North America and performed in major cities such as Brussels, Cologne, London, New York, Mexico City, Paris, Seoul, Tokyo and Vancouver; major venues including Weill Hall and Zankel Hall at Carnegie Hall, Bargemusic and Duke Hall at the Royal Academy of Music, London. The Quartet is a frequent guest at numerous music festivals including Amelia Island, Aspen, Brevard, Highlands- Cashiers, Kingston, Mostly Mozart, Rockport, San Miguel de Allende, and SummerFest La Jolla among others. They have been the Quartet in Residence at the Van Cliburn Institute, on the artist roster of Carnegie Hall's New York City Neighborhood Concert series, the Community Concerts Association roster and most recently, the Woodruff Arts Center's Art For Learning program that serves the greater Atlanta area.
