Playing “Chamber Music in Any Chamber,” the Chiara String Quartet (Rebecca Fischer, Julie Yoon violin; Jonah Sirota, viola; Gregory Beaver, cello) reaches from the concert hall into clubs, bars and galleries, expanding the places to hear live classical music while returning chamber music to its roots in intimate spaces.

“…in a club the quartet can mix Bartok and Beethoven without a collective gasp from the audience, they can talk to people about the music during breaks, they can wear jeans.” -Stacy Nick, Coloradoan
“…while their sexy reading of ‘An Andalusian Walkabout’ glimmered, shook, and dolefully sang, it was the biting Bartok and langerous, soulful Brahms that stole the show.” D. Feinstein, Strings Magazine
“The presentation catered to the expectations of a pop-music audience …[but] Condescension was not on the program.” – B. Holland, New York Times
“… an unforced power through purity of tone and deft articulations seems to be as natural as breathing or opening a book to this young ensemble. …. nothing short of exquisite.” – W. Stibor, NPR
