DCCA presents unique string quartet at Montage

GREENVILLE - Darke County Center for the Arts second Coffeehouse Series offering of the season on Oct. 10 features one of the most unique and sought after chamber ensembles touring today - Carpe Diem String Quartet.

“Carpe Diem's music defies classification,” stated DCCA Artistic Director Keith Rawlins. “In addition to the traditional string quartet repertoire, this award-winning group's program reflects their passions for pop, rock, folk, tango, Gypsy, and jazz-inspired music; they are extraordinarily talented musicians who not only entertain but also charm their audiences with their distinctive personality and sound,” Rawlins concluded. The concert by Carpe Diem takes place at Montage Cafe in downtown Greenville; the show begins at 7 p.m.

Carpe Diem String Quartet consists of Charles Wetherbee, violin, Amy Galluzzo, violin, Korine Fujiwara, viola, and Carol Ou, cello. These prestigiously credentialed musicians, known for their adventurous programming and informality on stage, are based in Columbus, where the Grammy-nominated ensemble won praise from The Columbus Dispatch for their “virtuosity without pomposity.” The quartet will also be performing for high school students in all Darke County schools from Oct. 7-10 as part of DCCA's Arts In Education series.

DCCA's Coffeehouse Series provides high quality artists performing in casual social settings where food and drink are available for purchase. DCCA's Coffeehouse concerts are sponsored by Julie and Tom Graber, Eileen and Steve Litchfield, and Rodney Oda. Additionally, the Ohio Arts Council helped fund this program with state tax dollars to encourage economic growth, educational excellence and cultural enrichment for all Ohioans. DCCA also receives operating support from the Harry D. and Esther Stephens Memorial as well as funding from the Ketrow Foundation, Lydia E. Schaurer Memorial Trust Fund.
