Music at Bunker Hill announces its next concert, scheduled for April 24 at 3 p.m.: Dover Quartet, featuring Joel Link and Bryan Lee, violins, Milena Pajaro-van de Stadt, viola, Camden Shaw, cello.
The Dover Quartet appears by arrangement with the Curtis Institute of Music, where it serves as the Penelope P. Watkins Ensemble in Residence. Named one of the greatest string quartets of the last 100 years by BBC Music Magazine, the GRAMMY nominated Dover Quartet has followed a “practically meteoric” (Strings) trajectory to become one of the most in-demand chamber ensembles in the world.
In their program GLIMPSES OF NEW WORLDS, Dover explores the works of Stravinsky, Mozart and Ravel. The Dover Quartet draws from the lineage of the distinguished Guarneri, Cleveland, and Vermeer quartets. Its members studied at the Curtis Institute of Music and Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music, where they were mentored extensively by Shmuel Ashkenasi, James Dunham, Norman Fischer, Kenneth Goldsmith, Joseph Silverstein, Arnold Steinhardt, Michael Tree, and Peter Wiley.
It was at Curtis that the Dover Quartet formed, and its name pays tribute to Dover Beach by fellow Curtis alumnus Samuel Barber. Music at Bunker Hill’s 2021-22 season features celebrated classical musicians from near and far.
The organization returned to in-person performance in October 2021. The South Jersey-based chamber music presenter’s 14th season includes six concerts, each featuring sought-after musicians who appear regularly with preeminent orchestras and at top venues throughout the world.
In keeping with safety guidelines, capacity has been capped at 50%, and proof of vaccine and booster is required. Masks are worn. A livestream will be available to ticket holders for one week after each concert.
The concert will be held at Bunker Hill Presbyterian Church at 330 Greentree Road, Sewell,
