The Incantato String Quartet was formed in January 2018 under the mentorship of Keith Pascoe. The members of the quartet are Inana Garis (1st violin), Anna McKenna (2nd violin), Dionne Tims (viola) and Peadar O Loinsigh (cello). Inana, Anna and Dionne attend DIT Conservatory of Music and Drama.
In February of 2018, they participated in their first masterclass with the Fidelio Trio, and in May received further masterclasses from the Vogler Quartet at the Sligo International Chamber Music Festival. To date, the ensemble has performed in the John Field Room at the National Concert Hall and the Irish Georgian Society. In late April, the quartet performed Jane O Leary’s ‘Mystic Play of Shadows’ as part of the Contemporary Music Centre’s ‘Musical Tales 2018’. The Boyle Arts Festival have engaged the quartet to play in a lunchtime concert in July of 2018.
The Incantato String Quartet are currently working on expanding their repertoire and persuing performance opportunities at future events
