String Quartet

The Music Academy of WNC  currently offers full tuition scholarships for two string quartets, (one for middle school and one for high school) on an auditioned basis each fall and spring semester.  The Music Academy of WNC also incorporates a tuition-free understudy program for all strings quartets to foster more student participation and provide real-world experiences through regularly scheduled rehearsals and concerts.

String Quartets are comprised of violin, viola, and cello.  Music selections range from Baroque, Classical, Romantic, to Modern classical and standard pieces.  Many performance opportunities are presented throughout each semester at the Music Academy and around Hendersonville, North Carolina.  Attendance is mandatory for all rehearsals and performances.  All String Quartets are directed by Jan Daugherty. Two Quartets meet 4:00 PM or 5:00 PM starting Monday, January 23, 2023.
