Bohemian Quartet in Concert




This acclaimed Providence-based ensemble features the sounds of the violin, viola, cello, and bass and specializes in the music of the Romany or “Gypsy” tradition, along with other related Eastern European folk styles. A performance by the Bohemian Quartet is a door to another culture; their fast tempos, virtuosic playing, and the echoing of spry strings crying and dancing ensures a riveting experience.

Violinist Stan Renard, a composer and virtuoso player, assembled the quartet in 2005 hoping to preserve the Romany tradition and indulge in the virtuosic playing of the group’s classic music. Renard recruited his like-minded friends Dave Zinno on upright bass, Christine Harrington on cello, and Nancy Richardson on viola.

The performance will be preceded by a presentation by the quartet, starting at 7:00 p.m.

Admission is $15 general/$10 members. 


Tickets are available at Wistariahurst.org or by calling the museum at (413)-322-5660
