Miami String Quartet and Spencer Myer, piano $
Praised in The New York Times as having “everything one wants in a quartet: a rich, precisely balanced sound, a broad coloristic palette, real unity of interpretive purpose and seemingly unflagging energy,” the Miami String Quartet has established its place among the most widely respected quartets in America. For over twenty years, their diversity in programming, poise in performance, keen sense of ensemble and impeccable musicality has made the Miami String Quartet one of the most sought after quartets in chamber music today. Members include Benny Kim and Cathy Meng Robinson, violins; Scott Lee, viola; and Keith Robinson, cello.
On Wednesday, July 5 at 7:30 p.m., they will join forces with pianist Spencer Myer on the second concert of the Kent/Blossom Music Festival Faculty Series. Lauded for "superb playing" and "poised, alert musicianship" by the Boston Globe, and labeled "definitely a man to watch" by London's The Independent, American pianist Spencer Myer is one of the most respected and sought-after artists on today's concert stage. The performance will take place in Ludwig Recital Hall, 1325 Theatre Drive in the Center for Performing Arts on the Kent State University Kent campus. Free parking.
