Green Gables, one of Bernardsville Mountain’s most storied mansions, will be the venue for a chamber concert to be performed by one of this country’s most exciting young chamber ensembles, the Voxare String Quartet. at 5 p.m. on Sunday, May 22.  

The concert is part of the annual season of concerts presented by Music in the Somerset Hills. 

The Voxare String Quartet, which will perform at the historic Green Gables on the Bernardsville Mountain, came together as a quartet in 2008. Its members – two men and two women, two Americans and two Russians – have performed individually as soloists with some of the great orchestras of America – the Chicago Symphony, the New York Philharmonic, and many more. As a quartet, they have a repertoire that spans five centuries, and they are not afraid to break down the traditional boundaries of classical music.  

The Voxare String Quartet has created and performed their own transcriptions of popular and rock music, and has made a specialty of presenting innovative concerts focused on contemporary chamber music which assimilates both classical standards and popular music. In the words of Ned Rorem, the Pultizer Prize-winning composer, “the Voxare Quartet is probably the best American chamber group performing today."
