Lorenzo Society Wednesday Concert: Saint John String Quartet 🎻

February 8 @ 12:00 pm 1:00 pm

The Lorenzo Society is happy to remind you of the Weekly Wednesday Concert Series in honour of Dr. Li-Hong Xu continuing this Wednesday, February 8th.

Saint John String Quartet

Featured musician of the week: Saint John String Quartet

For over 30 years, the Saint John String Quartet [SJSQ] has stood among Canada’s leading chamber music ensembles. Renowned for its flexibility, SJSQ is equally comfortable collaborating with blues artists and rock superstars, and performing Classical masterworks on its own.

The SJSQ performs over 125 concerts annually and serves as musicians-in-residence for both Symphony New Brunswick and the University of New Brunswick. It has performed for numerous heads of state and at prestigious venues the world over, including many countries in the Far East, Europe, and South America.

With many recordings to its credit, SJSQ has earned a Juno nomination [Classical Composition of the Year], and won an East Coast Music Award [Best Classical Album of the Year] and a Music NB award [Best Album of the Year]. Its albums feature new and innovative works and under-appreciated classical gems.

The Lorenzo Society is excited to welcome the Saint John String Quartet as this week’s Wednesday musicians.
