The Pollock String Quartet, featuring recent graduates of the Eastman School of Music, will perform works by Mozart, Smetana, Piazzolla and Beethoven Thursday, Aug. 8, at 7 p.m. in the Camden Amphitheatre, Atlantic Avenue. Concertgoers should bring blankets or chairs for seating; the event will be indoors in case of rain.

The concert is free but donations are appreciated. It is part of the Summer Music Series of the Camden Public Library, supported in part by Allen Insurance & Financial. The quartet’s members have a special interest in conducting outreach programs to introduce and inspire young students to enjoy and learn more about classical music.

The Pollock Quartet is: Victor Ronchetti, Violin 1; Alex Lee, Violin 2; Molly Goldman, Viola; and Ben Fried, Cello. Ronchetti made his Lincoln Center debut in New York City at age 10; in addition to his musical studies, he is pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Rochester. Lee is a repeat winner of the Pittsburgh Concert Society Young Artist Competition and will travel to Colorado later this summer as part of the National Repertory Orchestra. Goldman was the 2012 prize winner in the American Protege International Strings and Piano competition, which resulted in a performance at Carnegie Hall. Fried won the 2010 Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition, Junior Division, arguably the largest chamber music competition in the country.
