Tesla Quartet with Thomas Gallant, oboe

Chamber Concert
Pollard Auditorium

Pre-concert talk begins at 2:30 PM

Each returning to Oak Ridge by popular demand, the Tesla Quartet and oboist Thomas Gallant join forces this year in a special collaboration featuring string quartet repertoire and works for oboe and strings.  Award-winning artist Thomas Gallant is one of the world’s few virtuoso performers on the oboe, and has been praised by New Yorker Magazine as “a player who unites technical mastery with intentness, charm and wit.” Winner of the 2017 John Lad Prize and numerous international chamber music competitions, the Tesla Quartet was dubbed “technically superb” byThe Strad. Members are violinists Ross Snyder and Michelle Lie, violist Edwin Kaplan, and cellist Serafim Smigelskiy.
