Sunday, December 9, 2018 – 7 pm – Gala Holiday Concert
The Miró Quartet returns to Kohl Mansion to celebrate the season at Music at Kohl’s popular annual Holiday Gala Benefit Concert. Founded in 1995 at the Oberlin Conservatory and becoming the first ensemble ever to win the prestigious Avery Fisher Career grant in 2005, the Miró Quartet’s recent highlights include critically-acclaimed international performances and a sold-out return to Carnegie Hall. Additionally, the quartet is the winner of the Banff International String Quartet Competition and the Naumburg Chamber Music Competition. Cherished by Music at Kohl audiences, the Miró has served as Quartet-in-Residence at the University of Texas at Austin’s Sarah and Ernest Butler School of Music since 2003.
This non-subscription Gala Holiday Concert benefits Kohl for Kids programs, serving more than 7,500 youths annually.
