The MacArthur String Quartet, a select instrumental group, will be in concert, Thursday, Nov. 15, at 7:30 p.m., in Oklahoma Baptist University’s Yarborough Auditorium.
The quartet is a joint venture between OBU and the University of Oklahoma. The members of the MacArthur String Quartet are graduate students at OU who also serve as the principal chairs in the OBU/Shawnee Community Orchestra.
“The MacArthur String Quartet brings outstanding chamber music to Shawnee,” said Dr. Paul Hammond, dean of OBU’s Warren M. Angell College of Fine Arts. “They make a weekly contribution to our area through their work with the OBU/Shawnee Community Orchestra. I encourage all chamber music lovers to support this fine ensemble.”
The quartet includes Ana Maria Wilson and Rachel Fellows on violin, Joanne Mendoza on viola, and Celeste Power on cello.
Yarborough Auditorium is located on the lower level of OBU’s Raley Chapel. The concert is free and open to the public.
