WELLSBORO—The Dali Quartet will open the Wellsboro Area Community Concert Association’s 68th Season with a 7:30 p.m. concert on Saturday, Oct. 10 at the Deane Center’s Coolidge Theatre at 104 Main Street in Wellsboro.

With an artist’s grace and a Caribbean soul, the Dali Quartet is today’s freshest voice in classical and Latin American music. Anchored in both Venezuela’s El Sistema and in American classical conservatory traditions, this quartet combines the best of both worlds.

The quartet’s performances of traditional string quartet and Latin American repertoire create a concert experience that takes listeners on an eclectic journey of rhythm and sound. In the spirit of the famed Spanish artist Salvador Dali, the Dali Quartet embraces imagination and excellence as central to its art form.

In a review for the Salt Lake Magazine in Utah, 
Edward Reichel wrote: “The Dalí Quartet is a remarkable ensemble; it’s a true crossover group in the best sense of the word. Made up entirely of Hispanic musicians who are proud of their roots, they bring together the best music by Latin American and European composers. The result is a rare treat for everyone.”

The ensemble is comprised of award-winning solo and chamber artists who have appeared at Carnegie Hall, toured widely in Europe and Asia, collaborated with some of the finest composers of our time, and recorded for Dorian, Centaur and Naxos.

Based in Philadelphia, the quartet has brought the Latin-Classical connection to television, festivals and educational and presenting organizations in Canada, the United States and South America.

The group serves as Quartet in Residence for the Arts & Community Network where it hosts the Dali Quartet Chamber Music Camp and Festival and is also a Resident Ensemble of the Black Pearl Chamber Orchestra in Philadelphia. Part of the quartet’s mission includes presentation of many Latin-Classical educational programs each year – its popular events for students in grades K-12 are complemented by interactive concerts for the entire family.

Trained by world-renowned artists, members of the Dali Quartet are products of Venezuela’s social and music education movement El Sistema and have studied at such institutions as the Cleveland Institute of Music, Indiana University Bloomington, Conservatoire de musique de Genève, Switzerland and the Simón Bolívar Conservatory of Music in Caracas, Venezuela.

The subscription price for an adult to attend the six shows being offered in the 2015-16 season by the Wellsboro Community Concert Association is $60. That translates to $10 per show for those who attend all six. The price at the door for adults is $20 per show, $5 for students with student ID cards and free for children 12 and under who are accompanied by a paying adult.

Information and subscription forms are available by visiting, stopping in at the Deane Center at 104 Main Street in Wellsboro or by calling 570-724-6220.
