ABAC Presents! The Vega Quartet Performance on Oct. 12

Friday, September 29th, 2023

The Vega Quartet will perform on Oct. 12 as part of Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College’s ABAC Presents! Performing Arts Series.

The group is the Quartet-in-Residence at Emory University and is cultivating a new generation of chamber music lovers through dynamic performances and innovative community engagement. The Quartet's major performing projects at Emory have included performing the complete cycle of Beethoven quartets, as well as pairing Bach’s complete works for solo violin, viola, and cello with the six Bartók quartets. They have also developed a series of “Jazz Meets Classics” programs, bringing the two genres together.

“They’re a really amazing quartet,” said Wayne Jones, Arts Connection director. “We’re thrilled to have them back. This is their second time performing at ABAC for the ABAC Presents! Series.”

This performance is followed by pianist Jasmine Arakawa on Feb. 20, 2024; a play titled “Keep Marching: The Road to the March on Washington” will be featured on March 7, the Akropolis Reed Quartet performs on April 4, and The Jim Gasior Trio performing will join the ABAC Jazz Ensemble for a performance on April 18.
