‘Young, vibrant ensemble’ to perform at Randolph College

Randolph College will kick off its Guest Artist Series with a “young, vibrant ensemble whose star is rapidly rising.” 

The Terra String Quartet is scheduled to perform on Wednesday, Sept. 27, at 7:30 p.m. at the Maier Museum of Art at Randolph College, a free performance made possible by the Edwin and Elaine Dahl St. Vincent Music Fund.

“They’ve won top prizes in major competitions in the last few years and are recognized for their elegant and mature musicianship in performance,” said Emily Yap Chua, Randolph’s Catherine Ehrman Thoresen ’23 and William Erness Thoresen Professor of Music and director of the Guest Artist Series. 

“In addition to the concert, they will be working with string students in Lynchburg City Schools and the Lynchburg Symphony Youth Orchestra as part of our educational outreach. We are very excited to host these stellar musicians,” she added.

The quartet—Harriet Langley and Amelia Dietrich on violin, Ramón Carrero Martínez on viola, and Audrey Chen on cello—are prizewinners of the 2023 Melbourne and Osaka International Chamber Music competitions and gold medalists and grand prize winners of the 2022 Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition. 

Praised for “remarkable maturity and musicality” and “superb ensemble playing” (Hyde Park Herald, Chicago), these four musicians hail from across the globe and, through their unique individuality as artists, are committed to infusing the string quartet with equal parts passion, spontaneity, and humor.

The program at Randolph College will include works by Ludwig van Beethoven, Caroline Shaw, and Felix Mendelssohn. Admission is free.
