Highland Arts Event on Thursday to feature Beo String Quartet

A shared dedication to the continued understanding, exploration, and love of music is what inspired the formation of Beo String Quartet.

Members will be sharing their talent with local residents at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 15 at the Keyser Presbyterian Church as the Highland Arts Unlimited season continues.

 Beo String QuartetMembers Sandro Leal-Santiesteban, Jason Neukom, Sean Neukom, Ryan Ash are equally comfortable performing masterpieces of the string quartet repertoire, spending time in the studio, and working with living composers, the four individuals have introduced many audiences to music of both past and present and of varied genres.

 The members of Beo String Quartet hold degrees from some of the country’s top conservatories including the Eastman School of Music, Cincinnati Conservatory of Music, the Cleveland Institute of Music, Carnegie Mellon University, and the Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University. They have collectively studied chamber music with the Ying Quartet, the Pacifica Quartet, the Cavani Quartet, the Miami String Quartet, the Cuarteto Latinoamericano, and members of the Cleveland, Guarneri, and Borodin String Quartets.

Admission is free to HAU members. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for students. 

Area students under 18 are admitted free and young children are admitted free with a paying adult.
