Chamber Music Yellow Springs

Season starts Sept. 30 with Canadian quartet

Chamber Music Yellow Springs welcomes the Afiara String Quartet – an all-Canadian ensemble widely noted for its engaging, authentic presence and performances balancing  “intensity and commitment” with “frequent moments of tenderness.” [The Montreal Gazette].

The concert opens the CMYS 2012-13 season on September 30, 2012 at 7:30 p.m. at the First Presbyterian Church in Yellow Springs (314 Xenia Avenue). Tickets can be purchased in advance at or by mail; reservations at 937-374-8800. Individual tickets cost $20 per adult, $7 for students, and season tickets are still available.

The musicians will bookend the evening of chamber music with Beethoven String Quartets, beginning with the A Major Op. 18 and ending with the C major Quartet, Op. 59, No. 3. The middle portion of the concert will feature the contemporary composer Brett Abigaña’s String Quartet # 2, composed for Afiara in 2010.
