The Omer String Quartet will present an evening of string music on February 28 at 7:30 p.m. Based in Cleveland, Ohio, the Omer String Quartet was formed in 2009 and consists of violinists Mason Yu and Erica Tursi, violist Joseph LoCicero and cellist Alex Cox. Praised by the Cleveland Classical for being a “lean and resonant ensemble” with “committed and vivid” interpretations, the Omer String Quartet has been named the 2013 Grand Prize and Gold Medal winner of the 40th Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition. As part of their award, they toured the Midwest in October and will head for the Emilio Romagna region of Italy in the summer of 2014. The quartet recently completed chamber music studies as the Apprentice String Quartet and was awarded the Levine Chamber Music Award. Cox grew up in West Palm Beach and is a graduate of Palm Beach Public as well as Bak and Dreyfoos schools of the arts.
