The Mondavi Center’s longstanding partnership with Curtis on Tour brings us faculty pianist Meng-Chieh Liu and the Vera Quartet, which is currently the string quartet-in-residence at the Curtis Institute of Music. A recipient of the 2002 Avery Fisher Career Grant, Liu first made headlines in 1993 as a 21-year-old student, when he substituted for André Watts at the Academy of Music in Philadelphia with just three hours’ notice. Formed in 2015, the Vera Quartet has held residencies at the Beethovenhaus in Bonn, Aspen Music Festival, Norfolk Festival, McGill International String Quartet Academy and the Banff Centre, and has embarked on tours of Spain and South Korea. Curtis on Tour is the Nina von Maltzahn global touring initiative of the Curtis Institute of Music, and its alumni are engaged regularly at the world’s great opera houses and professional training programs.
