"These four string virtuosos animate every note with uncommon power and passion as well as elegance."

Hailed for their “ravishingly beautiful tone” as well as their “extraordinary technical skills and musicianship,” the New Orford String Quartet rose out of the fame and tradition of its glorious predecessor, one of Canada’s most illustrious music ensembles, the Orford String Quartet.

These stars of the classical music field, all principal players in the Montreal, Toronto and Detroit Symphony Orchestras, come together for a limited touring schedule on a project-by-project basis, providing a fresh perspective on interpretations of standard string quartet repertoire. We are honored to have this JUNO-nominated group open our season.

From their recent recording on Bridge Records, they will present the mammoth first Brahms quartet, paired with the much-loved quartet by Debussy.
