Mt. Moran String Quartet Summer Recital

Performance: June 25, 2014 7:00 pm

The Jacob Spori Art Gallery at BYU-Idaho is pleased to welcome back Mt. Moran String Quartet for  their 7th summer recital. The Mt. Moran Quartet was established in 2005 by the principal string players of the Rexburg Tabernacle Orchestra.  They have had numerous performances throughout Southeast Idaho, including an annual capstone performance in the Jacob Spori Gallery since 2008.  Each member of the quartet grew up in Rexburg, Idaho, and is a former member of the Madison High School and Ricks College Symphony Orchestras.  


The quartet is composed of Richard and KaraLyn Ferguson, violins, Ryan DaBell, viola, and James Gordon, cello.  Richard and KaraLyn are the owners of Ferguson Music Company in Rexburg and the founders of Mountains and Strings, a summer chamber music camp for teens.  Ryan is a faculty member in chemistry at BYU-Idaho, and James is a project manager in the BYU-I Academic Discovery Center.  Each also has experience in teaching their own music students.
This year's performance features the Quartet in C Minor, Opus 18, No. 4 of Beethoven, and the String Sextet in A by Dvorak.  For the Dvorak, the quartet is joined by Marta Smith, viola, and Robyn Brown, cello.  Both are music degree graduates of BYU.
