Free Event


The Simon Quartet will perform Haydn’s jocular Quartet in F Major, Op. 50, No 5, followed by Debussy’s richly textured Quartet, and finally, one of Mozart’s late masterpieces, the Quartet in B♭ Major, K. 589.

Monmouth University is pleased to announce that the Simon String Quartet and colleagues will again present free classical chamber music concerts as part of its Summer String-In workshop. The Simon String Quartet (Fiona Simon and Sebu Sirinian, violins; Lisa Suslowicz, viola; David Bakamjian, cello) is a special group of four seasoned performers whose passion for chamber music infuses their collaboration with energy and dynamism.  Led by Fiona Simon, a member of the New York Philharmonic, its members each combine careers in chamber music and orchestras, and as soloists and teachers.  Although currently based in New York, where they individually perform with some of the most distinguished ensembles in the area, their performing careers have taken them all over the world. The Summer String-In, now in its tenth season, is an intensive week-long music workshop for adult amateur string players that takes place on the campus of Monmouth University.
