Avalon String Quartet

NIU’s Avalon String Quartet will continue its season at 8 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 3, in Boutell Memorial Concert Hall.

The quartet will perform the Mozart String Quartet K 589 in Bb, Bartok’s String Quartet No. 3 and Schubert’s String Quartet in G Major D887.

The concert is free and open to the public.

Members of the Avalon Quartet are Blaise Magniere (firt violin, Richard O. Ryan Endowed Chair in Violin), Marie Wang (second violin), Anthony Devroye (viola) and Cheng-Hou Lee (cello).

All teach applied lessons and coach chamber music and are active in their performance career bringing attention to the NIU School of Music from the concert stage and in other outreach activities. They annually perform a number of concerts on campus and on a concert series produced by NIU at Symphony Center in Chicago.

Founded in 1995, the Avalon held residencies at NIU and the Hartt School and, prior to their appointment at NIU in 2007, was the faculty quartet-in-residence at the Indiana University-South Bend Raclin School of the Arts for four years.
