THE PUCK QUARTET

Lily Holgate and Kenneth Trotter, violins

Katharine Dryden, viola

Liam Veuve, cello


Drawing inspiration from their mischievous Shakespearean namesake, the quartet seeks to bring a capricious spirit and evocative language to music. Formed by chance in 2013 at Purchase College Conservatory of Music, they discovered a shared passion and sense of humor in their approach to chamber music, and have been performing together ever since. Our Joyful Noise is thrilled to have the Puck Quartet back for a second appearance in Baltimore! A special feature of these concerts will be performances of the stunning "Forever and Ever" from the String Quartet #3 by Michael Alec Rose.
