Effarus String QuartetThe Efferus String Quartet, a Kent State University graduate student chamber group, will perform a free concert on the 2nd floor balcony on Sunday, October 21 at 2:00 pm. No registration is required and all ages are welcome.

Created in March 2014, the Efferus String Quartet brings together four young professional musicians who share a deep interest in chamber music. Shortly after its foundation, the Efferus Quartet was selected by the Bogota Philharmonic Orchestra and the Teatro Libre of Bogota to participate in the 2nd Chamber Music Festival of the Teatro Libre.

In 2014 they premiered the work “Dynamics of a Meteoritre” by the young Colombian composer James Diaz, later recorded, edited and published by the National University of Colombia.

In 2014 and 2016 they attended Festiqartetos Festival where they were coached by the Miami String Quartet and the Avalon String Quartet. In 2015 and 2016 they were selected by audition to study with the Arianna String Quartet at FEMUSC in Brazil.

Recently they won a scholarship of the Master Class program of the XI International Music Festival of Cartagena to work with the Latinoamericano Quartet during the festival.
