The Samara Piano Quartet was formed in the Summer of 2017 bringing together four established musicians who have dedicated their professional lives to chamber music. The Quartet takes its name from the winged seeds produced by the abundant maple trees surrounding their rehearsal studio in Keene, New Hampshire. For their inaugural season of concerts the Quartet will be making appearances in New Hampshire & Vermont.
