Introducing The Franklin Quartet! I am honored to be a founding member (not a founding father..!) of this ensemble with Daniel Elyar (violin/viola), Marika Holmqvist (violin/viola) and Rebecca Humphrey (cello), performing 18th and 19th century string quartet repertoire on period instruments. We chose Benjamin Franklin as our namesake, embracing our Philadelphian roots, and celebrating the spirit of invention.
Our next concert happens on February 26th at S. Clement’s Church in Philadelphia, when we will perform Haydn’s ‘Seven Last Words of Christ’.
Thank you to Tatiana Daubek for this lovely photo!
