Thursday, March 5, 2015
7:30pm
Saint Paul College Theatre

With the passion, style, and musical sophistication borrowing from the best chamber music and string quartet traditions, the Minneapolis Guitar Quartet has successfully made its case as one of the world's leading guitar ensembles since its founding in 1986. "Flawless, musical and witty" (Classical Guitar Magazine, England), the MGQ has performed throughout the United States both in recital and with orchestra, balancing a dizzying array of first-rate repertoire ranging from Renaissance and Baroque to Spanish, Latin American and Romantic, to highly imaginative existing and newly commissioned contemporary works. Cutting-edge composer/performer Daniel Bernard Roumain, one of the more than 20 composers commissioned by the MGQ, calls the group "more than a guitar quartet, more than superb musicians, and more than a great chamber group. They are ambassadors of sound, style, and substance."

Music of Joaquin Rodrigo, Astor Piazzolla, Alberto Ginastera, David Crittenden, Maria Kalaniemi, Maja Radovanlija and J.S. Bach will be performed.

The Meadowlark String Quartet

Thursday, April 16, 2015
7:30pm
Saint Paul College Theatre

The Meadowlark String Quartet was founded as the resident quartet of Southwest Minnesota State University in the spring of 2014. The quartet is unique as they not only perform chamber music, but also lead the Southwest Minnesota Orchestra as section leaders. With their shared passions for chamber music, orchestral music, and music education, the Meadowlark quartet hopes to deepen their connection with both their Southwest and metro communities creating a musical bridge between their work in Southwest Minnesota and the Minneapolis and St. Paul Metro area. More information to follow about the April 16, 2015 performance.


A reception will follow each performance.
