The string quartet boho4 originated from the innovative Belgian string Orchestra Boho Strings, which sees classical music as a source of social self-reflection.
boho4 is a string quartet in residence at the Southampton Summer Strings Festival in Southampton (NY) and used the opportunity to plan a concert tour in New York last summer. boho4 also performed in Belgium several times and arranges a series of lecture performances in BOZAR Brussels.
boho4 is renowned for its eclectic style and the great diversity of its offerings. The quartet goes abundantly for breaking open common concert programs and experimenting with alternative concert formats. They even slide scores or sheet music aside and use the tablet!
