Rendezvous Arts
Metropolis Oboe Quartet

Where music, art and people come to play
Deb Stevenson / Thomas Yang / Rose Armbrust Griffin / Steven Houser
For almost two decades, the Metropolis Oboe Quartet has been treating Chicagoland to stellar renditions of both famous masterpieces and lesser-known gems. No quartet concert experience is the same, with the close-knit group of musicians eager to share their extensive musical knowledge with audience members via playful conversations interspersed throughout the program. Classical music takes on a new life and meaning through these high energy performances filled with memorable melodies and lush harmonies that redefine chamber music for a new age. Join us for a beautiful evening in our Stuart Room.
