Mondays are the nights for string quartets at the Bowdoin International Music Festival in Brunswick.

Next up is the Ariel Quartet from Israel. The quartet formed when the musicians were young, and they’ve been together since.

The group serves as quartet-in-residence at the University of Cincinnati, where its members direct the chamber music program and present an annual series of concerts.

At Bowdoin College’s Studzinski Recital Hall, the quartet will perform a program of Joseph Haydn’s “Sunrise,” Bela Bartok’s String Quartet No. 1 and Dmitri Shostakovich’s Piano Quintet in G Minor, Op. 47.
