Sunnyhill Live!: Clarion Quartet
The Clarion Quartet, an ensemble of world-class musicians who perform with the Pittsburgh Symphony, provides suppressed composers with a long overdue voice and celebrates their genius through performance, education, and advocacy.
The inspiration to form the Clarion Quartet came when Tatjana Chamis, Associate Principal Viola for the Pittsburgh Symphony, was asked to perform a program of chamber music by Jewish composers from the Holocaust. Chamis approached three of her colleagues in the Pittsburgh Symphony: violinists Marta Krechkovsky and Jennifer Orchard, and cellist Bronwyn Banerdt. All four make chamber music a regular part of their artistic activity along with their schedule in the orchestra, and so the prospect of a chamber performance had immediate appeal. Clarion gave its debut performance in Pittsburgh, and the feeling at its conclusion was almost palpable, a spark of wonder that represented a harbinger of something greater.
