Robbie Collomore Concert Series Presents: Parker Quartet


The Grammy Award-winning Parker Quartet, hailed by the New York Times as “something extraordinary,” will perform in the historic Chester Meeting House on Sunday, April 14 at 5:00 p.m. The concert is sponsored by the Collomore Music Series in its 39th season.

The Parker Quartet has rapidly distinguished itself as one of the preeminent ensembles of its generation. The quartet began its professional touring career in 2002 and garnered international acclaim in 2005, winning the Concert Artists Guild Competition as well as the Grand Prix and Mozart Prize at the Bordeaux International String Quartet Competition in France.  Chamber Music America awarded the quartet the prestigious biennial Cleveland Quartet Award for the 2009-2011 seasons.

Last summer, the Boston Globe reviewed the Parker Quartet’s performance as “intense, virtuosic, utterly assured. Indeed, the group thrives on combinations of intricacy and power. Their touchstones are precision and an assiduously cultivated blend of sound — focused and wiry at its core and, whatever the style, so well-matched that it can be difficult to tell where one instrument leaves off and another begins.”

Concert tickets for the Collomore concert are $21. For students from elementary through graduate school, a ticket is $5. All ticket-holders are invited to stay for a reception after the concert to meet members of the quartet. Ticket info: (860) 526-5162 or The Chester Meetinghouse is located on 4 Liberty Street in Chester (Exit 6 off Rte. 9). The concert is sponsored by Ceramica.
