Beo String Quartet brings its evocative program, “Farewells”, to North Dakota this winter. The gripping project explores the nature of beginnings and endings, well-wishes for the departed, and how the expressiveness of music can bloom when words aren’t enough. Be sure to catch the show at The Arts Center in Jamestown, ND Monday, February 3 at 7:30 pm.

“…what impressed me most was how they got deep inside my music, and put themselves into my sound world to create something new and powerful. Their interpretation of my quartet was simply astounding and showed tremendous maturity and drive. They played every note like it was the last note they would ever play! An absolutely spectacular group of young, hungry musicians.” — MARC MELLITS, UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS AT CHICAGO
