Columbus-based Carpe Diem is, according to the nearly 60-year-old Rocky River Chamber Music Society, “not your ordinary string quartet!” One assumes that’s why they booked them for their upcoming concert.
Carpe Diem — violin players Charles Wetherbee and Amy Galluzzo, violist Korine Fujiwara and cellist Carol Ou — formed in 2005, which makes them realtively young for a string quartet. And like many forward-thinking younger ensembles, they like to perform in non-traditional venues, making music more accessible to more people, something RRCMS also does by making all their concerts free.
When they perform for RRCMS at the West Shore Unitarian Universalist Church, they’ll play Franz Schubert’s Quartettsatz in C minor, Sergei Taneyev’s Quartet No. 9 in A major and conclude with Fiddle Suite: Montana, by the group’s own Korine Fujiwara.
