Chamber Music Charleston concludes their acclaimed Ovation Concert Series on Sunday, March 24, 2024 with a program of music combining violin, winds, and piano. Guest violinist Gabriela Diaz joins pianist Andrew Armstrong and musicians of Chamber Music Charleston for a program of music including Bartok’s “Contrasts” and Mozart’s Quintet for Piano and Winds.

Georgia native Gabriela Diaz began her musical training at the age of 5, studying piano with her mother and the next year, violin with her father. As a childhood cancer survivor, Diaz is committed to supporting cancer research and treatment in her capacity as a musician. In 2004, Diaz was a recipient of a grant from the Albert Schweitzer Foundation, an award that enabled Gabriela to create and direct the Boston Hope Ensemble. This program is now part of Winsor Music. A firm believer in the healing properties of music, Diaz and her colleagues have performed in cancer units in Boston hospitals and presented benefit concerts for cancer research organizations in numerous venues throughout the United States.
Critics have acclaimed Diaz as “a young violin master,” and “one of Boston’s most valuable players.” Lloyd Schwartz of the Boston Phoenix noted, “…Gabriela Diaz in a bewitching performance of Pierre Boulez’s 1991 Anthèmes. The come-hither meow of Diaz’s upward slides and her sustained pianissimo fade-out were miracles of color, texture, and feeling.”
Diaz can be heard on New World, Centaur, BMOPSound, Mode, Naxos, and Tzadik records.
Tickets start at $5 for Students and Parents, and $25 for General Audiences.
