Beckley Concert Association presents Armida Quartet.
Since its success at the ARD International Competition in 2012, where the Armida Quartet took First Prize, the Audience Prize and six other special awards, the career of the young Berlin string quartet has developed at a sensational pace. Founded in Berlin in 2006, the quartet took its name from an opera by Haydn, the “father of the string quartet”.
The Armida String Quartet is comprised of Martin Funda and Johanna Staemmler on violins, Teresa Schwamm on viola, and Peter-Philipp Staemmler on cello. The group performs internationally and has performed in no less than 22 of Europe’s major concert halls.
This engagement of Armida Quartet is made possible through the Special Presenter Initiatives program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation with the support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the West Virginia Division of Culture and History.
Performance starts at 7:30 pm at Woodrow Wilson High School Auditorium in Beckley.
