The enthusiasm and generosity of our audiences and patrons in the Western Piedmont region of NC have made it possible for us to be able to continue our residency in Hickory for one more season. We will be back in 2013-2014 for a season of concerts as a quartet and with the Western Piedmont Symphony.
We are elated to announce that we have been awarded a grant by CMA's Classical Commissioning Program, and that we have commissioned Jens Kruger of the Kruger Brothers to write a new piece for Kontras! The piece will feature string quartet, guitar, banjo and bass guitar, and we will be premiering it in the coming year.
