AVO String Quartet is a professional string quartet based in Pretoria, Gauteng. We take great pleasure in playing and performing on a regular basis. We strive to maintain a professional standard through the musicality of our players and we embrace our long standing careers in the music industry and the diversity of our professional backgrounds to inspire a new depth in our interpretation of repertoire.
We further embrace this approach to diversity by regularly incorporating other musicians into our ensemble to explore different combinations of instruments and perform works composed for larger groups. For the program we chose to perform at Wakkerstroom Music Festival, Jannie le Roux, a revered pianist and lecturer at the University of Pretoria, will be performing as our pianist.
