On Friday, April 26th, the Montclaire String Quartet will perform at Carnegie Hall in Lewisburg, at 7:30pm.

Carnegie Hall is delighted to be presenting this public performance of the Montclaire String Quartet. They will have just completed eight performances for Greenbrier County students in grades K-5, and we hope the adult members of our community will enjoy the show as much as the children. – Lynn Creamer, Carnegie Hall’s Artistic Director.
Previous shows have featured a diverse collection of these short classics: Felix Mendelssohn’s Capriccio in D minor No. 3; Theodor Kirchner’s “Nur Tropfen;” Frank Bridge’s “Sally in the Valley” and Sir Roger de Coverley “A Christmas Dance;” Turina’s La Oracion Del Torero; and Tchaikovsky’s Early Pieces for String Quartet.
