Agnes Scott College's Kirk Concert & Master Class Series presents the Vega String Quartet
The Vega String Quartet, comprised of Elizabeth Fayette & Jessica Shuang Wu, violins; Yinzi Kong, viola; Guang Wang, cello is the Quartet in Residence at Emory University. The New York Times raved that their "playing that had a kind of clean intoxication to it, pulling the listener along...the musicians took real risks in their music making..." The quartet is a frequent guest at music festivals nationwide and has performed in major venues including Weill Hall and Zankel Hall at Carnegie Hall, Bargemusic and Duke Hall at the Royal Academy of Music, London. The Vega's major projects since being named Quartet in Residence at Emory in 2006 include the complete cycle of Beethoven Quartets, a BachBart├│k cycle; and the commissions and premieres of works by numerous leading composers. They started the Youth Chamber Music Program and have developed innovative programs collaborating with other art forms including dance, painting, poetry and theatre. The Quartet captured four of the top six prizes at the 1999 Bordeaux String Quartet Competition as well as top prizes at the Coleman Chamber Ensemble Competition, the Carmel Chamber Music Competition, and the National Society of Arts and Letters String Quartet Competition. The Vega Quartet's residency at Emory is made possible in part by a generous grant from the Abraham J. and Phyllis Katz Foundation.  For more information, visit http://www.vegaquartet.com/.
