Friends of Music Concerts deeply mourns the sudden passing of Robert Kern, a crucial member of our Board for many, many years. Bob's contributions to FOMC were legion.

Every summer, the Arianna String Quartet hosts an intensive chamber music festival right here in St. Louis. Young artists from St. Louis to Santiago (Chile), California to Korea, engage in a cultural exchange of musical ideas.
The Arianna Chamber Music Festival uses the art of chamber music playing to teach life skills of creative and critical thinking, collaborative team work, and self-expression. Skills and ideas that they take back with them to build connections and communities.
Friends of Music Concerts has entered into a mutually beneficial relationship this season with the Arianna String Quartet and its summer program, the Arianna Chamber Music Festival. On Sunday, December 2, 2018 The Arianna String Quartet performed a concert on our 2018/2019 season featuring Schubert’s “Death and the Maiden” Quartet (based on a Schubert song by that name) and the remarkable Quartet in C# minor Op. 131 by Beethoven. This is the first season that the Arianna String Quartet has performed for Friends of Music Concerts.
