Washington College 2008-2009 Concert Series Concludes with Acclaimed Attacca Quartet

Chestertown, MD — The 57th season of the Washington College Concert Series concludes with a performance by the Attacca String Quartet at the Norman James Theatre on Friday, April 17, at 8 p.m.

Winner of the Alice Coleman Grand Prize at the 60th annual Coleman Chamber Ensemble Competition in 2006 and one of 10 quartets chosen to compete in the semi-finals of the 9th Banff International String Quartet Competition, the internationally acclaimed Attacca String Quartet is well on its way to becoming one of America's premier young performing ensembles.

Featuring violinists Amy Schroeder and Keiko Tokunaga, violist Gillian Gallagher and cellist Andrew Yee, the quartet was formed at the Juilliard School in 2003 and gave its debut recital in 2007 as part of the Artists International Winners Series in Carnegie Hall's Weill Recital Hall. The group's star has been rapidly in the ascendant ever since.

Tickets for the performance can be purchased at the door — $15 for adults, $5 for youth and students. For more information, call 410/778-7839.
