The Solem Quartet

Join us on Wednesday, 14 March at 7pm in the Dining Hall.

The Solem Quartet are one of the most exciting string quartets in the UK.  They will be visiting Forest to give workshops and masterclasses to our young string players and to perform a joint concert.  Don’t miss the chance to hear this exceptional concert!  The Solem Quartet are: Amy Tress, William Newell (OF), Alistair Vennart and Stephanie Tress.

Winners of the 2014 Royal Overseas League Ensemble Competition, the Solem Quartet enjoy a busy concert schedule at venues across the UK including Wigmore Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Bridgewater Hall and Holywell Music Room, as well as performing internationally.  They have recorded two CDs of 20th Century British music for Divine Arts record company. They are 2016/17 Park Lane Group Artists and have given recitals at Kings Place, St John’s, Smith Square and St Martin-in-the-fields in this year as part of the PLG recital series. In 2016, they were also selected as Tunnell Trust Artists, through which they will be touring Scotland in 2018.
