Called “the young American string quartet of the moment” by the New Yorker, the Dover Quartet will perform a benefit concert in support of those affected by the August 12 hate rally, with proceeds going to the Heal Charlottesville Fund. Starting out in 2008, the group has rocketed upward—captivating audiences with its dynamic sound and adept musicianship—and now occupies a top spot on the international scene. Its talent for sweeping musicality is shown on its debut album, Tribute, a nod to the famed Guarneri Quartet, which brings Mozart back to life with three pieces from the renowned composer.

Saturday, September 23. Donations suggested, 4pm. Martin Luther King Jr. Performing Arts Center, 1400 Melbourne Rd. 466-3880.
