    WHITE MILLS - With the grace of fine artists and a Caribbean soul, Dali Quartet will appear at the Wildflower Music Festival on Saturday, July 20. The program includes works by Haydn, Villa-Lobos, and Turina. The performance begins at 6 p.m.
    The Dalí Quartet’s captivating performances of traditional string quartet and Latin-American repertoire create an extraordinary concert experience that takes listeners on an eclectic journey of rhythm and sound. In the spirit of famed Spanish artist Salvador Dalí, the Dalí Quartet embraces imagination and excellence as central to its art form. The quartet is comprised of award-winning solo and chamber artists who have appeared at Carnegie Hall, toured widely in Europe and Asia, collaborated with some of the finest composers of our time, and recorded for Dorian, Centaur and Naxos. As a quartet, they have been invited to perform with emphasis on the Latin-Classical connection for television, festivals and presenting organizations from Toronto to Texas, and from New York to Venezuela.
    Trained by world-renowned artists, members of the Dalí Quartet are products of Venezuela’s social and music education movement El Sistema and have studied at esteemed institutions such as the Cleveland Institute of Music, Indiana University Bloomington, Conservatoire de Musique de Genève, Switzerland and the Simón Bolivar Conservatory in Caracas, Venezuela.
    General admission tickets are $22; students 6 to 18 years are $11. There is no charge for children under six.
    The general admission performance begins at 6 p.m. at the Wildflower Amphitheater on the grounds of the Dorflinger-Suydam Wildlife Sanctuary in White Mills, between Hawley and Honesdale. Guests are invited to bring lawn chairs and pack a picnic to enjoy the pristine setting. Light beverages will be for sale on the Sanctuary grounds.
    Upcoming concerts in the Wildflower concert series include: Dry Branch Fire Squad, Eileen Ivers and Immigrant Soul (special $29 ticket), Tizer, and Susan Winters.
    In the event of inclement weather, the performance will be held at the air-conditioned auditorium at the Wallenpaupack Area High School.
