Telegraph Quartet Presents ChamberFEAST Taiwan: A festival of education, engagement, and performance
The Telegraph Quartet (Eric Chin and Joseph Maile, violins; Pei-Ling Lin, viola; Jeremiah Shaw, cello) announces ChamberFEAST, its first chamber music festival in Taiwan, from November 12-22, 2020. ChamberFEAST is born out of Telegraph’s mission to spread music through education and audience engagement, and is presented by Revolving Gate Music. The Telegraph is co-hosting the festival with the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, where the quartet is currently on chamber music faculty as the Quartet-in-Residence.
During the festival, the Telegraph Quartet will work intensively with university and high school music students throughout Taiwan in various activities including chamber music coachings, performance classes, masterclasses, lectures, and sight-reading sessions, culminating with a student performance. Among these students are some of the Telegraph’s very own from the San Francisco Conservatory, who stayed home in Taiwan due to the pandemic. Other participating institutions include National Kaohsiung Normal University, National Taiwan Normal University, Taiwan National University of Art, four high schools in Kaohsiung, and one high school in Hsinchu. They will also participate in a summit for the arts in the affiliate senior high school of National Taiwan Normal University, which is Telegraph violist Pei-Ling Lin’s alma mater.
Telegraph Quartet’s performance highlights include two concerts at Eslite Concert Hall in Taipei. On Monday, November 16, the quartet will perform Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 14 in C-sharp minor, Op. 131 and Brahms’ Sextet No. 2 with Dr. Kuan-Chen Huang and Dr. Victor Coo – violist and cellist of the Voyager Quartet in Taiwan. On Friday, November 27, they will present Eleanor Alberga's String Quartet No. 2, Korngold’s Quartet No. 3, and Mendelssohn’s Viola Quintet No. 2 with Dr. Yi-Wen Chao.
