What we're about

The purpose of this meetup group is to provide a way for amateur adult violinists, violists and cellists to play the classical string quartet music. We have been meeting since February 2016. There are about 10 members who are regularly attending the Friday morning meetups. We have been playing the Mozart Band I/II quartets and the Beethoven Opus 18 quartets as well as some Mozart quintets and piano quartets. This fall we have starting playing some Dvorak, Borodin and the Beethoven middle period quartets. We meet on a regular basis in my home in Huntington Beach for about one and a half hours. We strive for a relaxed and enjoyable experience and gear the music to meet members playing levels and interest.

The meetup session on Friday mornings 11AM to 12:30PM is well attended. We are scheduling one month at a time to insure we have a quorum for the 4 parts.

We are currently looking to form a meetup session for working adults that would be on weekday evenings or possibly weekends. So far there are 3 violinists interested; so once we find a cellist and violist we will find a mutually agreeable time to meet. Please contact me directly ( 714-916-7354) if you are interested.

Play Mozart & Beethoven Quartets on Friday Mornings

We are a group of about 7 violin, viola, cello and piano players who have been playing quartets of Mozart, Beethoven, Haydn, Dvorak at 10:00 AM every Friday morning at my house, 6152 Eaglecrest Dr Huntington Beach, since April 2015.
