The Chiara Quartet has forged a new path for the string quartet
medium.
In the concert hall and in intimate galleries and clubs, the
Chiara embraces a 'no-holds-barred' approach to their
performances. (The Strad)

Renowned for bringing fresh excitement to traditional string
quartet repertoire, as well as for creating insightful
interpretations of new music, the Chiara String Quartet
captivates and enthralls audiences throughout the country.
Over its first decade, the Chiara has established itself as
among America?s most respected ensembles, lauded for its ?
highly virtuosic, edge-of-the-seat playing? (The Boston Globe).

*Additional info:
50 Mason Social House is San Francisco's newest intimate music venue.
Centrally located in downtown SF, Social House boasts a warm
setting with exposed brick walls.
The corner stage and subdued lighting hearken back to the
sultry scene that thrived here during the turn of the last
century.
The wine menu features varietals from across the globe and most
of the craft beers on tap are brewed just a stone?s throw away.

Classical Revolution was founded in November 2006 when several
former and current San Francisco Conservatory of Music students
met at Revolution Cafe in San Francisco's Mission District for
public chamber music reading sessions.
Classical Revolution has presented chamber music events in
venues all around the Bay Area, with the goal of presenting
high quality performances in locations that are accessible to
as many people as possible.
The concept has spread to other cities, with chapters and
offshoots currently active in Portland, Reno, New York,
Philadelphia, Chicago, Berlin, Cincinnati, Ann Arbor,
Cleveland, Belgrade, Madison, Montreal, Toronto, South Florida,
and Washington DC.
