ODEION STRING QUARTET Tchaikovsky | Schubert | Piazzolla

Event Details

The University of the Free State (UFS) string quartet tradition goes back to the Free State String Quartet (led by Jack de Wet), which pioneered string and orchestral instrument playing in the Free State between 1960 and 1972. The Odeion String Quartet (OSQ) was established at the UFS in 1991 as a permanent, full-time resident string quartet and is the only resident string quartet at a South African university. The OSQ symbolises the university’s commitment to the performing arts, and it plays an important strategic role in the development of symphony orchestra music and in classical music training in all communities in the Free State.

The Quartet currently consists of Samson Diamond (first violinist), Sharon de Kock (second violinist), Jeanne-Louise Moolman (violist) and Anmari van der Westhuizen (cellist).
