The Euclid Quartet, Morningside College’s resident string quartet, will present a concert on Tuesday, May 3, at 7:30 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church, 608 Nebraska Street. General admission is $10 and $5 for students.
The quartet will perform works by Beethoven and Miyoshi, Haydn’s “The Sunrise Quartet,” and Bartók’s Quartet No. 4.
The concert is in preparation for the Fifth Osaka International Chamber Music Competition to be held May 18-25 at Osaka, Japan. The quartet was selected from a field of 160 ensembles to participate in the competition.
Members of the quartet include Jameson Cooper, violin; Jacob Murphy, violin; Luis Vargas, viola; and Amy Joseph, cello.
The Euclid Quartet has been part of the Morningside College music faculty since 2001 while continuing to perform locally, regionally, and nationally both as a quartet and as solo musicians. They also serve as faculty for the Leo Kucinski Academy of Music.
