Night Owl Quartet (NOQ), a young, new-to-the-block group presents works by Ravel, York, Brouwer, and more!

Based in the south bay area, the Night Owl Quartet is a young new-on-the-block guitar ensemble created by Christopher Adams, Aaron Bjorge, Melody Sheppard, and Paden Schmidt. Since their inception in Spring 2014, NOQ has made it a priority to be able to bring the works of York, Brouwer, Ravel, and others as well as our very own Bjorge and Schmidt to the local schools, music organizations, and additional venues. Focusing their style in both Modern and Classical music, they explore the possibilities of the classical guitar and actively share this joy with other people. Their goal is to create a memorable experience for your audience.
