The Chamber Orchestra of the Triangle's String Quartet-in-Residence, the Verona Quartet, will perform Natural Reflections as part of the UpClose Chamber Music Series. The quartet, hailed by The New York Times as an "outstanding ensemble," is the recent recipient of the prestigious Cleveland Quartet Award for the 2020-2022 seasons.

The evening's program, an exploration of how music takes inspiration from mother earth and the heavens, will feature Haydn's "Sunrise" Quartet, Dennehy's The Weather of It, and Dvorak's Quartet in G Major.

As The Chamber Orchestra of the Triangle's String Quartet-in-Residence, the group curates and performs on the COT's UpClose Chamber Music Series, and will also make over 40 musical appearances in the Durham and greater Triangle community throughout the 2019-20 season. Members of the quartet also serve as principals of the orchestra on its 6 subscription concerts in Durham.

The Verona Quartet — Jonathan Ong and Dorothy Ro (violins), Abigail Rojansky (viola) and Jonathan Dormand (cello) — rose to international prominence by sweeping top prizes at competitions across four continents, including the Wigmore Hall, Melbourne, Osaka, and M- Prize International Competitions, and performing at venues such as Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, the Kennedy Center, and Melbourne Recital Hall. Recipients of the 2015 Concert Artists Guild Competition, the quartet has demonstrated its commitment to interdisciplinary collaboration by partnering with Brooklyn's Dance Heginbotham, traditional Emirati poets in the UAE, the folk supergroup I'm With Her, and cellist Joshua Roman.

The quartet has commissioned works from composers Julia Adolphe, Sebastian Currier, Richard Danielpour, and Michael Gilbertson, whose Quartet was a finalist for the 2018 Pulitzer Prize in Music. Forthcoming album releases include Gilbertson's Quartet, as well as the ensemble's debut album, Diffusion on Azica Records.

In addition to its residence with The Chamber Orchestra of the Triangle, the quartet also serves as Quartet-in-Residence for the Indiana University Summer String Academy and New England Conservatory Preparatory School.
