Music Series: Arianna String Quartet with Brian Woods

The World Chess Hall of Fame is thrilled to present the first collaboration between Music Director Brian Woods and the internationally acclaimed Arianna String Quartet. The program features César Franck's intensely passionate Piano Quintet in F Minor, a French romanticism masterwork described as possessing "torrid emotional power." Join us for an unforgettable evening of chamber music!

Music Director Brian Woods is joined by the Arianna String Quartet, which has firmly established itself as one of America’s finest chamber ensembles. Their performances have been described as “radiant from the first moment,” (A.M. News, Léon, Mexico) with “emotional commitment, fluent virtuosity, and poetic vision” (Pretoria News, South Africa). Based in Saint Louis since 2000, the Arianna String Quartet is celebrating 30 years of making music for audiences worldwide. For more information, visit
