The Telegraph Quartet will be performing on Sunday, March 6 at 4 p.m. at Desert Hills Presbyterian Church, located at 34605 N. Tom Darlington Road in Scottsdale. The concert is free and community members are welcome.

“It’s been a packed season and we are truly blessed,” says Darla Gilchrist of Desert Hills Presbyterian Church’s Music & Arts Committee. “The committee has worked tirelessly to bring ten events this season, from a classical pianist to a biodramatist.”
The Telegraph Quartet (Eric Chin and Joseph Maile, violins; Pei-Ling Lin, viola; and Jeremiah Shaw, cello) formed in 2013 with an equal passion for standard and contemporary chamber music repertoire. Based in San Francisco, California, the Quartet is currently on the chamber music faculty at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music as the Quartet-in-Residence.

“The San Francisco Chronicle” describes The Telegraph Quartet as, “Soulfulness, tonal beauty and intelligent attention to detail … an incredibly valuable addition to the cultural landscape.”

Concert goers can expect a varied program consisting of Florence Price: “Five Folksongs in Counterpoint,” Grazyna Bacewicz: “String Quartet No. 4,” and Ravel: “String Quartet in F Major.”

Locals can also enhance their experience by attending the pre-concert workshop, “Conversations with Master Musicians,” from 2:30-3:30 p.m. Space is limited for the workshop; attendees are encouraged to call 480-488-3384 to reserve a spot.
