Local Listening: The Bohemian Quartet

 

On Sunday February 15th, the Bohemian Quartet will perform at the Artists’ Cooperative Gallery of Westerly.

The Bohemian Quartet was formed in 2005. Stan Renard, a composer and virtuoso violin player with an impressive list of credentials, assembled the group with the idea of preserving the tradition and indulging in the virtuosic playing of classic gypsy music. Renard recruited like-minded friends: Dave Zinno on upright bass, Christine Harrington on cello, and Nancy Richardson on viola.

The performance starts at 3pm. Tickets are $20 and include wine and snacks. To reserve tickets, call 603-203-7137 or email bohemianquartet@gmail.com.
