Zorá String Quartet to Perform at Eastern

     With a strong background of awards and recognition, the Zorá String Quartet is not a stranger to success. According to the Zorá String Quartet’s website, “the name ‘Zorá’ was chosen by… Kevork Mardirossian; it means ‘sunrise’ in Bulgarian.” Winning multiple awards and touring all over the world, this group of four has made a strong name for themselves. In 2015 the Zorá Quartet worked with many other ensembles and participated in master classes with the London Haydn Quartet. They were also given the amazing and prestigious opportunity to play with Yo-Yo Ma in the Silk Road Ensemble. In the fall of 2013 the quartet collaborated with Pulitzer-prize recipient and American composer Caroline Shaw to play her pieces with the NOTUS Contemporary Vocal Ensemble. In the spring of 2014 the quartet was asked to perform and study manuscripts at the Beethoven-Haus in Bonn, Germany. All four of the Zorá Quartet members have acquired graduate degrees in performing and chamber music from The Jacobs School of Music of Indiana University. The group was also a part of the school’s Chamber Music Performer’s Diploma from 2014 to 2016. The Zorá Quartet has dedicated their future to helping kids reach their passion in music by teaching students and serving as college-level string players at Indiana University.

     The Zorá String Quartet will be performing at Eastern University as part of the Emerging Artist Series on Sunday, Oct. 23 at 3 p.m. in the McInnis Auditorium. Tickets are free for students with an Eastern ID. There will be a post-concert reception where students can meet the members of the quartet.
