Opera House Arts will present the internationally-acclaimed DaPonte String Quartet in a special summer appearance in Chamber at the Church Tuesday, June 24, at 7 p.m. The concert, Made in America, will feature American composers, from well known audience favorites such as Samuel Barber’s “Adagio” and George Gershwin’s “Lullaby” to masterful but infrequently heard contemporary American works including Randall Thompson’s “Alleluia,” Earl Stewart’s “Blues Fugues,” and George Crumb’s stunning “Black Angels.” This is the second concert in OHA’s seven concert Chamber at the Church series.

Advance tickets are recommended and can be purchased online at operahousearts.org. Single tickets may also be available at the door the evening of the performance.
