NYC-Based Attacca Quartet to Play in Cleveland

By Laura Howell | November 6, 2017 | Press Release

The internationally acclaimed Attacca Quartet is one of the most dynamic ensembles of their generation. Attacca Quartet will be performing on Tuesday, November 14 at 7:30pm at the Bologna Performing Arts Center on the campus of Delta State University as part of the new Recital Hall series, featuring classical music in an intimate setting in the BPAC’s 145-seat Recital Hall.

From sold out concerts at Carnegie Hall and Radio City Musical Hall to National Public Radio’s far reaching Tiny Desk concerts, the Attacca Quartet celebrates the timeless beauty of the string quartet for a broad audience and this sublime art form.

Praised by The Strad for possessing “maturity beyond its members’ years,” the Attacca Quartet was formed at the Juilliard School in 2003 and made their professional debut in 2007 as part of the Artists International Winners Series in Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall. From 2011-2013 they served as the Juilliard Graduate Resident String Quartet, and for the 2014-2015 season they were selected as the Quartet in Residence by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. As stated by The Washington Post, “Mastery like this is scarce enough in quartets that have played together for decades.”

The Attacca Quartet has engaged in extensive educational and community outreach projects, serving as guest artists and teaching fellows at the Lincoln Center Institute, the Boston University Tanglewood Institute, and the Woodlands ChamberFest in Texas, to name a few. During their time in Cleveland, Attacca Quartet will give a mini-performance at a local assisted living facility in addition to providing a masterclass for Delta State University’s Department of Music students.

Tickets to see the Attacca Quartet are $35, and discounts are available for groups of 10 or more. Tickets are on sale now online or at the BPAC Ticket Office at (662) 846-4626.
