Formosa Quartet


 On February 12-17, 2018, EMU's School of Music & Dance   welcomes the internationally acclaimed FORMOSA QUARTET —violinists Jasmine Lin  and Wayne Lee, violist Che-Yen Chen and EMU’s Professor of Cello, Deborah Pae — for a weeklong chamber music residency. 

Hailed as “spellbinding” (BBC Music Magazine) and “one of the very best quartets of their generation” (David Soyer, cellist, Guarneri Quartet), the Formosa Quartet will lead a series of masterclasses, open rehearsals, and workshops on performance, community engagement, and career development to over 200 of our students.

 The week will culminate with two concerts — on February 15 in Pease Auditorium, a performance with Dr. Mary Schneider and EMU Winds Symphony of Joel Puckett's Concerto for String Quartet and Wind Symphony,  Short Stories. And on February 16 in Honors College, a special evening with Formosa Quartet featuring masterworks by Schubert, Dvorak, and Beethoven followed by a Meet & Greet and CD signing with our guest artists.

All events are FREE and open to the public. To view the complete Residency Events Schedule , please click HERE.
