The Amelia Island Chamber Music Festival kicks off this month with the critically acclaimed Miró Quartet on January 18 at 7:30 p.m. The Quartet has won first prizes at major national and international competitions, including the Banff International String Quartet Competition and the Naumburg Chamber Music Competition. In 2005, the Miró Quartet became the first ensemble ever to be awarded the coveted Avery Fisher Career Grant. Praised as “extraordinary” by The New York Times, clarinetist Romie de Guise-Langlois has appeared as soloist and chamber musician on major concert stages throughout the world.
The performance will be held at Amelia Baptist Church, 261167 Buccaneer Trail. Tickets are $60. For more information visit www.ameliaislandchambermusicfestival.com.
