We’re coming to you from An Appalachian Summer Music Festival in Boone, North Carolina for a LIVE concert with the Tesla Quartet.

Comprising violinists Ross Snyder, Michelle Lie, violist Edwin Kaplan, and cellist Serafim Smigelskiy, the quartet has been a top prizewinner in several international competitions — most notably the Second Prize, Haydn Prize, and Canadian Commission Prize at the 12th Banff International String Quartet Competition.

Now entering its second decade, the quartet has engaged in numerous international performances, with recent highlights including their debut at New York’s Lincoln Center, a return to London’s Wigmore Hall, and other performances in Brazil, China, and South



Join us as we stream one more upcoming performance from the festival on Friday, July 30 at 7:00 PM (ET) with “The Pianist with the Hair” Julian Gargiulo.
