Polymnia Quartet Bio:

The Polymnia Quartet (Benjamin Hart and Kate Withrow, violins; Amelia
Clingman, viola; Philip Von Maltzahn, cello) was founded in 2015 in
New Orleans with a focus on presenting classical standards and
contemporary compositions in atypical venues, offering audiences fresh
ways to experience chamber music. The Quartet performs regularly at
the Marigny Opera House and for the Marigny Opera Ballet. Locally,
they have performed at Southern Rep Theatre, Nola Brewing Company,
Tulane University, and at the Audubon Park “Music Under the Oaks”
series. In 2018, the Quartet commissioned and premiered a new
collaborative work at the Music Box Village.

The Polymnia Quartet has performed for New Orleans Opera Association’s
productions of Maria de Buenos Aires andAs One, which they also
performed with the Des Moines Metro Opera. Educational collaborations
have included masterclasses for the Birdfoot Festival in New Orleans
and a side-by-side with the Magnolia Concert Society Chamber Orchestra
in Gulfport, MS. They currently serve as Ensemble-in-Residence for the
New Orleans Friends of Music’sOpen Your Ears educational initiative.

The name “Polymnia” refers to the Greek Muse of hymns and poetry and
is a nod to both New Orleans’ Polymnia Street and the celebrated Mardi
Gras Krewe of Muses.
