Their performance, which is part of the Stephenson Memorial Concert series, blends traditional string quartet and Latin-American sounds. The program is free and open to the public.

Comprised of award-wining solo and chamber artists, The Dali Quartet is a group of musicians whose talents are influenced heavily by Classical and Latin-American music. This group has toured extensively across the globe throughout Europe and Asia, and has appeared at Carnegie Hall. Based in Philadelphia, the quartet has brought their music to television, festivals, and presenting organizations on tour in the U.S, Canada, and South America.

Convocations at Berea College feature outstanding scholars, artists, and leaders whose presentations enliven the intellectual, aesthetic, and religious life and contribute to the students’ educational experience. Convocations also provide shared intellectual experiences for students, faculty, and staff thus enriching the College’s vibrant academic community. The Stephenson Memorial Concert series was established by the family of the late John B. Stephenson, former president of Berea College, and his sister Nancy Anne Stephenson, to bring outstanding musical performances to Berea College for the enrichment of all, free of charge.

See for the schedule of all convocations this academic year.

Berea College, the first interracial and coeducational college in the South, focuses on learning, labor and service. The College admits only academically promising students with limited financial resources, primarily from Kentucky and Appalachia, although students come from 40 states and 70 countries. Every Berea student receives a Tuition Promise Scholarship, which means no Berea student pays for tuition. Berea is one of nine federally-recognized Work Colleges, so students work 10 hours or more weekly, earning money for books, housing and meals. The College’s motto, “God has made of one blood all peoples of the earth,” speaks to its inclusive Christian character.
