Artaria highlights the Wyman Series

NOV. 20, 2006--The Wyman Series at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls will continue with the string quartet Artaria, who will perform at 8 p.m. Dec. 6 in the North Hall Auditorium.

Described by the Boston Globe as "exquisitely balanced and sonorous" and "first-rate," Artaria's refined and thoughtful playing has brought them critical acclaim in Europe and throughout the United States. Firmly rooted in the great traditions of the chamber music masterpieces, the Artaria String Quartet is also a loyal advocate of contemporary music.

Enthusiasts say that Artaria has a rare ability to offer outstanding performances in both concert and educational outreach settings; it has performed hundreds of programs to thousands of students throughout the United States.

The quartet won the 2004 McKnight Performing Artist Fellowship Competition. It has premiered a wide array of new works and has numerous commissions to its credit. With a mixture of classical and contemporary music, this will be an intriguing and highly entertaining performance.

Tickets are free for UWRF students with ID, $5 for the public and $3 for age 18 and under. For more information, contact UWRF Student Services and Programs at 715-425-4444.
