The Erskine College Fine Arts Series presents the Meccore Quartet in concert Tuesday, Feb. 10, at 7:30 p.m. in Memorial Hall. Admission is $5 at the door, free with Erskine I.D. The public is invited to attend. Convocation credit will be offered for Erskine students.
The Meccore Quartet was formed in Poland by four of Europe’s most celebrated young string players in 2007 and now performs extensively throughout the continent. The Quartet’s debut tour in North America took place in 2013.
The Quartet won second prize—and three additional special prizes—at the London International String Quartet Competition at Wigmore Hall in April 2012. The Quartet has also received top prizes at the Paolo Borciani Competition (2011), the International Chamber Music Competition in Weiden (2010), and the Max Reger International Chamber Music Competition (2009).
The Quartet receives financial support from the Polish Ministry of Culture and National Heritage, as well as from Young Poland.
