For 25 years, the Friends of Music at Coe (FOMAC) has been working to connect the Coe College Music Department with the wider Cedar Rapids community in an effort to build audiences. The group, founded by alumni and friends of Coe, also works to provide enhanced educational opportunities by bringing guest artists to campus.

To celebrate a quarter century of support, FOMAC will present the Amara Piano Quartet on Sunday, Oct. 15 at 3 p.m. in Sinclair Auditorium on the Coe campus. The concert is free and open to the public.

The Amara Piano Quartet — Boro Martinic, violin; Jonathan Sturm, viola; George Work, cello; and Mei-Hsuan Huang, piano — is the resident chamber ensemble at Iowa State University. The quartet will play music by composers Joaquín Turina, Gabriel Fauré and Astor Piazzolla.

The Coe College Music Department presents more than 40 events each year — including performances by student ensembles, faculty recitals, and concerts featuring guest artists — the majority of which are free to attend. FOMAC’s presentation of the Amara Piano Quartet contributes to and celebrates that ongoing legacy.
