Calling all Amateur String Quartet Players:  The St. Lawrence String Quartet Wants You!

Feature | Oct 24, 2013 | By Princeton University Concerts,
Calling all Amateur String Quartet Players:  The St. Lawrence String Quartet Wants You!,

The St. Lawrence String Quartet, a terrific young Canadian quartet, will be appearing on the Princeton University Concerts series on November 7 at 8pm in Richardson Auditorium.  Following their performance, we are hosting a "late night jam session" with the quartet.  We are asking all amateurs of any age and ability to join the Quartet on stage at Richardson to read a Haydn String Quartet Op. 76, No. 3 together with the Quartet. The St. Lawrence Quartet has a special love for the Haydn Quartets and they have said that their "primary focus for this event is our wild enthusiasm for Haydn and how we want to convert the masses to the religion of Haydn."

We hope you will all participate on November 7.  To sign up, please call the Concert Office at 609-258-2800 or e-mail John Burkhalter at jburkhal@princeton.edu.  Please send your name, phone number and instrument.  The sign up deadline is November 4 and space is limited so act quickly.  The Concert Office is open Monday - Friday, 10AM -4PM.  Please leave a message if you call and get an answering machine.

Please forward this to friends.  The event is open to all string players - violins, violas and cellos.
