Great things are born from limitations!!! Covid-19 might have forced us out of the concert halls, but nothing can stop us. Because we love classical music, and we love you, we took the challenge we were posed with, and reinvented Open Mic Classical.
We transferred our event onto Zoom, we practiced for the past two months, and for the first time ever we are connecting through continents.
Open Mic Classical is bringing you as guest featured ensemble the internationally acclaimed Tiberius String Quartet, one of the most vibrant string quartets on the international musical scene today. They have trained with the best of the best, following the European string quartet tradition.

The Tiberius Quartet was founded in 1994 at the Academy of Music in Cluj, Romania under the guidance of Sandor Devich (of the Bartók Quartet). Since 2007 the Tiberius Quartet has been the State String Quartet of the Targu Mures Philharmonic Orchestra, playing thirty concerts each season. The Quartet has played throughout Europe (including at the Concertgebouw, Tonhalle and other major venues) and in Japan, focusing mostly on the works of Mozart, Beethoven, Haydn, Brahms and Schubert. Although all were born in the Transylvanian region of Romania where they are citizens, the musicians consider themselves ethnic Hungarians. The Quartet attended many masterclasses including the International Bartók Seminar (Szombathely, Hungary), the Internationale Sommerakademie Prag-Wien-Budapest (Reichenau, Austria), the Britten-Pears School for Advanced Musical Studies (Aldeburgh, England), and the Orlando Festival (Netherlands) where they met Madame Isabelle Bensa (organizer of the string quartet competition in Bordeaux-ex Evian) who recommended the Tiberius Quartet to the Amadeus Summer Course in London (masterclass with members of the Amadeus Quartet), which they attended four times. Later the Quartet twice attended the Chilingirian Quartet’s masterclass at West Dean Castle, and were invited by Norbert Brainin (leader of the Amadeus Quartet) to his personal masterclasses in Asolo, as well as working privately with Martin Lovett, cellist of the Amadeus. The Tiberius Quartet had masterclasses at the Liszt Ferenc Academy in Budapest with the Bartók Quartet, and at the Dutch String Quartet Academy in Amsterdam, completed with the highest possible citations, with the continuous support of Stefan Metz. The Quartet won the Erste Wiener Klassik Preis in Reichenau, Austria with Norbert Brainin, Sigmund Nissel, Sandor Devich, Gunter Pichler and Milan Skampa all on the jury. Recently the Tiberius has been coached by Jerry Horner, retired violist of the Fine Arts Quartet. At their annual “Tiberius Week” International Chamber Music Festival in Targu Mures, Romania, the Quartet performs with members of the Bartók , Orlando, Chilingirian, and Fine Arts Quartets, as well as with many other guest artists from around the world. Theirs is the only major event of this type in all of Eastern Europe.
