icarus Quartet performs in Perrysburg

PERRYSBURG — St. Tim’s Discovers, a classical music series presented for the community by St. Timothy’s
Episcopal Church, will present the icarus Quartet on Sunday at 3 p.m.
Drawing their name from the mythological figure Icarus, who dared to fly too high, the icarus Quartet
pursues soaring harmonies and pulsating rhythmic energy to new heights of artistry. Founded as a student
ensemble by four former Yale University classmates – Jeff Stern, Matt Keown percussion and Larry Weng,
Yevgeny Yontov, piano – the icarus Quartet is now touring the country.
The quartet will present selections including commissions by the members and one arrangement by
percussionist Keown. The artists will perform on two Steinway grand pianos and a multiplicity of mallet
percussion instruments.
In addition to their active touring schedule, the quartet is passionate about education and engaging
young musicians. They have presented clinics for students from elementary through college.
