Blackstone River Theatre is presenting the acclaimed Rhode Island-based Bohemian Quartet at 8 p.m. on Saturday, October 13, 2018. Tickets to the show are $16 in advance and $18 at the door.
Featuring violin, viola, cello, and bass, the Quartet specializes in music of the "Romani" or "Gypsy" tradition, along with related Eastern European folk styles. The group was formed in 2005. The name was borrowed from the original Bohemian Quartet (also known as the Czech Quartet after 1918), a string quartet of international repute that was founded in 1891 and disbanded in 1934. Both groups share a passion for the deep-rooted authenticity of the Romani tradition, as well as the ability to play that historic repertoire with extraordinary joie de vivre.
The Quartet's third CD project "For You" was released at Blackstone River Theatre last year.
Here is a schedule of upcoming concerts at Blackstone River Theatre this fall and winter.
