Galliard String Quartet

April 17, 2024 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

4 musicians holding string instruments standing side by side

Join us for an afternoon dive into the world of string quartet music with the Galliard String Quartet. Experience the emotional power and intimacy of the string quartet as we unravel its 300 year old history. From heart-wrenching harmonies to uplifting melodies, chamber music has the unparalleled ability to stir the deepest of emotions within us through dramatic conversations. Join us on this captivating journey through classical, jazz, Hawaiian tunes, and beloved movie scores, and feel the transformative energy that only chamber music can evoke!

Fueled by love and passion, and sometimes tea and coffee, the Galliard String Quartet’s romance for the music of Beethoven, Brahms, Schubert, Shostakovich, and many others is unparalleled. Founded in 1982, the Galliard is known throughout the islands for their uncompromising commitment to performing classical and modern music of the highest caliber. All four members of the present Galliard quartet are members of the Hawai‘i Symphony Orchestra and are also seasoned teachers and music educators in the community. Recent highlights and collaborations include award-winning vocalist Raiatea Helm, acclaimed pianists Wu Han and Joyce Yang, conductor and silent film historian Rick Benjamin, and composers Jon Magnussen, Michael-Thomas Foumai, and Takuma Itoh.
