Verona Quartet

Tune in to the Young Artists Showcase on Wednesday at 9pm for an in-studio performance and conversation with the Verona Quartet. Winner of the 2015 Concert Artists Guild Competition, the Quartet is comprised of violinists Jonathan Ong and Dorothy Ro, violist Abigail Rojansky, and cellist Warren Hagerty. They joined us in the studio in advance of their upcoming Carnegie Hall debut on February 7th, playing music by Haydn, Beethoven, and Ravel.

Founded in 2013, the Verona Quartet has emerged as a remarkable group of young musicians. They have toured widely and performed in international venues such as the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Wigmore Hall, the Melbourne Recital Hall, Izumi Hall, and the National Theater in Abu Dhabi. In addition to performing together as an ensemble, the Verona Quartet has also participated as visiting teachers and artists, furthering classical music education at conservatories around the world, as well as in public elementary, middle, and high schools. Here in New York City, the Verona Quartet teaches as Lisa Arnold Fellows and serves as Graduate Resident String Quartet at The Juilliard School.

The Verona Quartet will make their Carnegie Hall debut at Weill Recital Hall on Tuesday February 7th at 7:30pm.
