Verona Quartet
+ Wu Man (pipa)

November 17, 2024

As a principal, founding member of Yo-Yo Ma’s Silkroad Project, Wu Man belongs to a rare group of musicians who have redefined the role of their instruments, in her case, the pipa, a pear-shaped, four-stringed Chinese lute with a rich history spanning centuries. Celebrated as an accomplished composer, educator, and one of the most prominent instrumentalists of traditional Chinese music, Ms. Wu’s adventurous spirit and virtuosity have led to collaborations across artistic disciplines, allowing her to reach a wide audience as she works to cross cultural and musical borders.

The Verona Quartet has firmly established itself amongst the most distinguished ensembles on the chamber music scene today. The Quartet serves on the faculty of the Oberlin College and Conservatory as the Quartet-in-Residence. In addition to its position at Oberlin, the Quartet recently held residencies at Nova Scotia’s Lunenburg Academy of Music Performance, North Carolina’s Chamber Orchestra of the Triangle and the ENCORE Chamber Music Institute. As committed advocates of diverse programming, the Verona Quartet curated the UpClose Chamber Music Series on behalf of the COT, electrifying audiences with their “sensational, powerhouse performance[s]” (Classical Voice America).
