Calendar





Please join us for our Montclaire String Quartet 2016-17 season!!
We are very excited about our performances in Davis Hall as the Resident String Quartet of West Virginia State University, and our series at the Erma Byrd Gallery on the Campus of Charleston University which are presented by the West Virginia Symphony.

New for us this year is the Evergreen Arts and Humanities Series at Washington State Community College in Marietta, Ohio. This is a special concert weekend as we will be performing the premiere of a string quartet composed by West Virginia's own Matthew Jackfert of West Virginia Public Broadcasting

Also this season we will be celebrating the 225th anniversary of Mozart's death (1791) and also the 260th anniversary of his birth (1756). Other programming highlights include Schubert's "Trout" Quintet,  Haydn "Seven Last Words"and more! 

Come  join us for another exciting season!
