CCM’s Eminent Scholar in Chamber Music, James Tocco, performs with special guests the Amernet String Quartet from Florida International University tonight, February 7 at 8:00 p.m. in Werner Recital Hall. The program will feature the Taneyev Piano Quintet and more. Lauded for their “intelligence” and “immensely satisfying” playing by the New York Times, the Amernet String Quartet has garnered worldwide praise and recognition as one of today’s exceptional string quartets. The concert is free and open to the general public.

Ensemble-in-Residence at Florida International University since 2004, the group was formed in 1991, while its founding members were students at the Juilliard School. Amernet rose to international attention after their first season, winning the Gold Medal at the Tokyo International Music Competition in 1992. In 1995, the group was the First Prize winner of the prestigious Banff International String Quartet Competition.
