SUMMIT, NJ, September 7, 2015 – The St. John’s Summit Concert Series (SJSCS) is excited to return for its second season of musical performances, beginning with a presentation of the Calidore String Quartet on Saturday, September 26 at 7:00 pm. The concert series will continue to showcase its array of talented musicians at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Summit, New Jersey.

The Calidore Quartet has achieved critical acclaim, having won virtually all the major U.S. chamber music competitions, including the Fischoff, Coleman, Chesapeake and Yellow Springs competitions. The group currently holds status as artists in residence at the State University of New York’s Stony Brook campus, and has recently been selected to join the roster of the prestigious Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center 2 for a three-year residency, beginning in 2016.

 “The Calidore Quartet is a great beginning for our second season,” explained Ken Bryson, president, SJSCS. “They are an extremely talented group of musicians that will delight people of all ages through their passionate interpretations of celebrated classical pieces.”
