The Sunday concerts, sponsored by Dominican’s Department of Music, Dance, and Performing Arts, start at 3 p.m. in Angelico Concert Hall. Free parking is available in the nearby Conlan Center lot off Grand Avenue.

Founded in 1992, the San Francisco-based Del Sol String Quartet – featuring violinists Benjamin Kreith and Samuel Weiser, cellist Kathryn Bates, and Charlton Lee on viola – is two-time winner of the top Chamber Music America/ASCAP Award for Adventurous Programming. They will be joined on stage by pianist June Choi Oh, of Dominican for the Gerald Finzi quintet. The performance of the Ben Johnston quartet will be presented with a multimedia installation by Matthew Garcia, also a Dominican faculty member.

At Dominican, the Del Sol String Quartet is scheduled to perform Jonah Gallagher's Ghosts of Grass, Terry Riley's The Wheel & Mythic Birds Waltz, Johnston's Quartet No. 4 Amazing Grace, Finzi's Eclogue Arr. for Piano Quintet, Zeynep Gedizlioğlu's Susma's (Quartet no. 2: in memory of Hrant Dink), and Erberk Eryilmaz's Hoppa! 2.
