The Arts at Noon concert series at Grand Valley will continue its 40th season this winter with seven free concerts on the Allendale Campus, beginning with a performance by Grand Rapids' own Perugino Quartet.

Named after Renaissance artist Pietro Perugino of Grand Rapids’ sister city Perugia, Italy, the Perugino Quartet is comprised of Grand Rapids Symphony members including, Eric Tanner (violin) and Christopher Martin (violin), Barbara Corbato (viola) and Stacey Bosman Tanner (cello). Together, the quartet performs classics of the string quartet repertoire, as well as a variety of new chamber works.

The Perugino Quartet centers its appearances around Michigan, having performed at many arts-based events, such as the Chamber Music Festival of Saugatuck, Art Reach of Mid Michigan and Muskegon's Feeding the Soul of the City concert series. The ensemble has also performed at the world-renowned Julliard String Quartet Seminar at the Lincoln Center in New York City. 

All Arts at Noon concerts will take place in the Cook-DeWitt Center, begin at noon, and last approximately one hour. Each concert is free and open to the public.
