Afiara String Quartet

Location: UH Hilo Performing Arts Center

Presented by the Hawaii Concert Society

Formed in 2006, these new kids on the block take their name from the Spanish fiar, meaning "to trust," a basic element vital to the depth and joy of their music- making. The Afiaras are the winners of the 2008 Concert Artists Guild International Competition, the 2010 Young Canadian Musicians Award, and took top prizes at the Munich ARD International Music Competition and the Banff International String Quartet Competition, where they also took the Szekely Prize for best Beethoven interpretation. This youthful Canadian Quartet has lively interest in new works and fresh insight into core classical repertoire.

"A revelation...their performance individually and collectively, their musicality and the Afiara among the best of current quartet.” - La Presse

"Moments of sheer transcendent beauty abounded from both the music and the musicians.” - Montreal Chamber Music Festival Review

Special Restrictions: Admission required. Tickets are $20 General, $16 Seniors, and $10 for Students.
