The return of the mighty SLSQ opens our 38th season! Described as “modern,” “dramatic,” “superb,” “wickedly attentive,” “with a hint of rock ‘n roll energy” by critics around the globe, the SLSQ are a phenomenon and one of the glories of Canadian music. Along with their countless awards and residency at Stanford University, the Quartet also distinguishes itself as one of the only ensembles to perform as concerto ensemble-soloists with orchestra (John Adams’ Absolute Jest) with Gustavo Dudamel and the LA Philharmonic, Marin Alsop and the Baltimore Symphony, and Michael Tilson Thomas with the San Francisco Symphony.
Our Honorary Patron Artist, having been “series regulars” for over 35 years, is the first Canadian string quartet to take 1st Prize at the Banff International String Quartet Competition. Passionate educators, have since inspired countless chamber musicians and award-winning string quartets after them. Their playing is a breath of fresh air and an incredible way to launch our season.
