ROCK HILL, S.C. -- The Friends of the Conservatory series presents the Dalí Quartet, on Sunday, March 2, at 7:30 p.m. in Frances May Barnes Recital Hall.

General admission is free for Friends patrons, $10 for adults and $5 for students with valid I.D. 

With an artist's grace and a Caribbean soul, the Dalí Quartet is a fresh voice in Classical and Latin-American music. Anchored in both Venezuela's El Sistema and in American classical conservatory traditions, this exciting young quartet combines the best of both worlds.

The Dalí Quartet's performances of traditional string quartet and Latin-American repertoire create an extraordinary concert experience that takes listeners on an eclectic journey of rhythm and sound. In the spirit of famed Spanish artist Salvador Dalí, the Dalí Quartet embraces imagination and excellence as central to its art form.

The quartet is comprised of award-winning solo and chamber artists who have appeared at Carnegie Hall, toured widely in Europe and Asia, collaborated with some of the finest composers of our time, and recorded for Dorian, Centaur and Naxos. As a quartet, they have been invited to perform with emphasis on the Latin-Classical connection for television, festivals and presenting organizations from Toronto to Texas, and from New York to Venezuela.

The Dalí Quartet serves as Quartet in Residence for the Elite Strings Program,  where it hosts the Dalí String Quartet Summer Music Camp and Festival, and the Resident Ensemble of the Black Pearl Chamber Orchestra in Philadelphia, which is dedicated to normalizing minority participation in classical music. A part of the Dalí Quartet's mission includes the presentation of many educational concert activities each year - its popular events for students in grades K-12 are complemented by interactive concerts for the entire family.

Trained by world-renowned artists, members of the Dalí Quartet are products of Venezuela's social and music education movement El Sistema and have studied at esteemed institutions such as the Cleveland Institute of Music, Indiana University Bloomington, Conservatoire de Musique de Genève, Switzerland and the Simón Bolivar Conservatory in Caracas, Venezuela.
