Omer Quartet, the School of Music's Fellowship Quartet is pleased to host its second Music for Food Concert to benefit the UMD Campus Pantry.  The concert will explore the intimate chamber music of the early works of Shostakovich and Mendelssohn. Professor Kenneth Slowik will open the evening with a harpsichord performance of a chromatic fantasy and fugue by Bach.

When we are here on the beautiful UMD campus, it can be easy to forget there are people who struggle with hunger. The UMD Campus Pantry offers food to students, staff and faculty who face the challenges of food insecurity.  We in the Omer Quartet find the work of the campus pantry inspirational in the quest to alleviate hunger among members of the UMD community who may go to work or classes hungry.

We hope you’ll join us for this beautiful concert program and donate whatever amount you are able. One dollar is equal to three meals - let’s support our campus pantry!
