Concert Series presents Dvořàk Meets Shostakovich

The Santa Paula Concert Series presents a classical concert, Dvořàk Meets Shostakovich on Saturday, November 5 at 7:00 PM at the historic Universalist Unitarian Church, a Ventura Historical County landmark, located at 740 East Main Street, Santa Paula. This performance presents the String Quartet No. 3 of Dmitry Shostakovich and the String Quartet No. 12, Op.96 of Antonin Dvořàk.

The Sincopa String Quartet was established in 2015, and had its debut concert in May 2016 in Ojai, California. The members of the quartet come from different countries, and each of them brings influences from different cultures. Now all living in the L.A. area, they have come together because they share the same passion for chamber music. Violinist Ashot was a member of the prestigious Vardanyan Quartet in Armenia. Violinist Luis-Gustavo Mascero Alberto hails from Brazil and had studied and performed both classical and jazz performance. Violist Jennifer Wu has performed from Carnegie Hall to Walt Disney Hall, as well as internationally.
