Quartet Nouveau & Chamber Music Institute is a professional classical string quartet based in San Diego. They are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to bringing classical music to the San Diego community. Quartet Nouveau & Hope UMC are presenting the first Rancho Bernardo Chamber Music Festival June 10-12. There will be three concerts throughout the weekend which are free and open to the public. Quartet Nouveau have been artists in residence at Hope United Methodist Church since 2012 and they want to reach out to the Rancho Beranrdo community through their music. The concerts will feature Quartet Nouveau, the California Chamber Orchestra, and Nouveau Ensemble. This will be California Chamber Orchestra’s first performance in San Diego, as they are based out of Temecula. The Nouveau Ensemble will feature Bryan Smith on tuba and Rebecca Matayoshi on viola. Their hope is that this festival will be successful in Rancho Bernardo and repeat in future years. You can find information at www.quartetnouveau.org.
