New Orford String QuartetNovember 5th @ 3:15 pm - 5:15 pm EST $30 – $55
Violinists Jonathan Crow and Andrew Wan are concertmasters of the Toronto and Montreal Symphony Orchestras, Brian Manker is principal cello in Montreal and Sharon Wei is a viola guest principal and educator. Their concept – to bring four elite orchestral leaders/soloists together on a regular basis to perform chamber music at the highest level – has resulted in a quartet that continually delivers a fresh, virtuosic perspective.
The quartet are 2017 JUNO winners for best classical album. While touring major North American cities, the players are dedicated to performing in small rural towns and to works by Canadian composers. Their program is a reflection: 21st century works by Shaw (Blueprint) and Sokolovic (Commedia dell’arte III) plus Beethoven (String Quartet No. 10 in E-flat Major, Op. 74) and Ravel (String Quartet in F Major, M. 35).
