A string quartet that has garnered international praise and has local connections will perform at Southern Theatre.
The Chamber Music Connection and Chamber Music Columbus will be presenting the Calidore String Quartet performing Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s “Quartet in D Major, K. 575” at 4 p.m. on Jan. 16.
The Calidore also has a special connection with Columbus. First violinist Jeffrey Myers, a graduate of Upper Arlington High School, was a member of the Chamber Music Connection string quartet known as opus.
