The Oregon Coast Youth Symphony Festival will conclude its Winter Concert Series this Saturday, April 13, with a performance from the acclaimed Delgani String Quartet at the Newport Nazarene Church.
Featuring Wyatt True and Jannie Wei on violin, Kimberlee Uwate on viola and Eric Alterman on cello, the Delgani String Quartet presents exciting performances of both classical and contemporary repertoire. The group has performed at prestigious venues including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City and at Charles University in Prague.
The Delgani String Quartet was formed in 2014 with a mission to cultivate an appreciation for chamber music through distinctive performance, innovative programming, educational engagement, and collaboration. The members of the quartet collectively hold 12 degrees in string performance from various schools of music and conservatories across the nation.
