String quartets at Old Town Hall, March 17

Welcome Spring with the sweet sounds of the Saguenay String Quartet and the Lafayette String Quartet at the Almonte Old Town Hall, Ron Caron Auditorium, on Saturday March 17, 2018 at 7:30 pm.

These two hallowed quartets combine a performance history of more than five-and-a-half decades! They join forces to perform rarely heard compositions for string octet by Mendelssohn and Gade, and by Canadian composers Kelly-Marie Murphy and Airat Ichmouratov. The latter is a new work specifically commisioned for this joint performance.
