Shell Point Retirement Community continues its 2017 Summer Concert Series with a live performance from the Amernet String Quartet at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 29 at the Social Center on The Island at Shell Point.
The Amernet String Quartet serves as an ensemble-in-residence at Florida International University in Miami. The foursome is composed of cellist Jason Calloway, along with violinists Misha Vitenson, Franz Felkl and violist Michael Klotz.
Praised for their “intelligence” and “immensely satisfying” playing by the New York Times, the group’s sound has been described as “complex with an old world flavor and superbly brilliant technique.” The quartet’s combination of technical ability and beauty of sound is derived from many of today’s local composers.
The Shell Point performance will be held in a chamber-style setting that will allow audience members to mix and mingle with performers and enjoy refreshments following the concert. Individual tickets for the Amernet String Quartet are now available for $20, and can be purchased online at www.shellpoint.org/concerts or by calling 239-454-2067.
