St Lawrence String Quartet

“Modern”, “dramatic”, “superb”, “wickedly attentive” are some ways critics describe the St Lawrence String Quartet.  Their music making, at once intellectually exciting and emotionally alive, is known and loved by the Music in the Park Series audience from many previous visits.  Their program will include the world premiere of a work by former Schubert Club composer-in-residence Edie Hill, commissioned with support from the Thelma Hunter Fund of the American Composers Forum.  The Quartet’s program will also feature a quartet by Franz Joseph Haydn. According to The New Yorker, “…no other North American quartet plays the music of Haydn with more intelligence, expressivity, and force.”
