They’re back for part two of their transformative “Beethoven Project!”

This unique concert experience is divided into three separate concerts that span the lifetime of Beethoven, one of the greatest Germanic artists in history. Purchase all three nights for the full experience, which includes our signature on-stage seating. The first part of this series was performed at Gallagher Bluedorn in March 2022 but you will still enjoy this experience whether you attended previously or not.



Join Elias String Quartet in a one-of-a-kind experience exploring the creative life and growth of an authentic genius, Ludwig van Beethoven. Not only do Beethoven’s quartets capture the thoughts, drama and passion of a young man, but they also reflect his life, wisdom and experiences as he grew into a mature artist, developing some of the finest compositions of all time.

The Elias String Quartet has quickly established themselves as one of the most intense and vibrant quartets of their generation, with BBC Music Magazine describing their performance as “simply astounding, in the freshness, intensity, assurance and seeming spontaneity of their playing.”
