The Miró Quartet, the first quartet ever to be honored with an Avery Fisher Career Grant, will perform at Oberlin as part of the Artist Recital Series at 8 p.m. Thursday, March 10, in Finney Chapel. The concert will feature Beethoven's notoriously challenging "Razumovsky" quartets.

Formed in 1995, Miró still features two Oberlin-educated founding members: violinist Daniel Ching ’95 and cellist Joshua Gindele ’97. Today, the ensemble is quartet in residence at the University of Texas at Austin, where Ching and Gindele teach and coach chamber music.

In advance of the quartet's visit, Gindele caught up recently with The complete story can be found here.

Tickets for Miró Quartet are $30 ($25 for Oberlin staff, alumni, and seniors), and all student tickets are just $10. Learn more by calling 800-371-0178, online at, or visit Oberlin's Central Ticket Service (at Hall Auditorium, 67 N. Main St.) from noon-5 p.m.

The performance is part of a busy week for the Artist Recital Series; on Sunday, March 13, Oberlin trombone professor Robin Eubanks will lead his Mass Line Big Band to Finney Chapel for a 7:30 p.m. performance showcasing the ensemble's acclaimed new recording More Than Meets the Ear.
