The Montclaire String Quartet, resident chamber ensemble of the West Virginia Symphony Orchestra, begins its 2013-2014 concert series with "Vienna Nights" on at 3 p.m. Oct. 6 at the Erma Byrd Gallery on the campus of the University of Charleston. 

The program includes Webern's Langsamer Satz, Mozart's String Quartet No. 23 in F, K. 590, and Brahms' String Quartet No. 3 in Bb, Op. 67.

Members of the Quartet are Amelia Chan, first violin; Anton Shelepov, second violin; Bernard Di Gregorio, viola and Andrea Di Gregorio, cello.  All members serve as principal players of their respective sections in the West Virginia Symphony Orchestra.  

Tickets for the concert are $12 for adults and $6 for students and are available in advance by calling the Clay Center Box Office at 304-561-3570 or online at wvsymphony.org. Tickets will also be sold at the door beginning at 2 p.m. 

For more than 20 years the Montclaire String Quartet has served as the quartet-in-residence of the West Virginia Symphony Orchestra. In addition to performing its own four-concert series in Charleston and recitals around the state, each of the Quartet members serves as the principal of the Symphony's string sections. A large part of Montclaire's mission is to bring classical music to children throughout West Virginia, and the Quartet plays approximately 50 uniquely innovative programs per year, reaching as many as 14,000 students of all ages annually.
