Hickory – The Western Piedmont Symphony’s 55th season continues with the Kontras Quartet, as part of this year’s Chamber Classics: Homecoming series.

Chamber Classics 4 with Kontras Quartet and the Kruger Brothers will be held at J.E. Broyhill Civic Center on February 29, 2020 at 7:30 p.m. Attendees will be sure to enjoy an evening of eclectic music performed by these world-traveling musicians.

If you can’t make the evening performance — join the Kontras Quartet for lunch at our very popular Soup, Salad & Strings luncheon series at 11:45 am in the Keiser Community Room on Friday, February 28, 2020 at the SALT Block. Soup, Salad & Strings is an informal luncheon/concert that is perfect for concert goers who prefer daytime entertainment.

Kontras returns for a residency with the Western Piedmont Symphony after having served as the Hickory Metro String Quartet in residence from 2010-2014. The Hickory Metro String Quartet Residency is the only program of its kind in North Carolina; it brings numerous outreach programs to audiences of all ages in the region, and features world-class musicians.
