Come hear the Lafayette String Quartet, Quartet in Residence at the University of Victoria, perform gems from their tremendous history together as they give their final performance for their home audience in Victoria, BC. The first quartet that they ever performed (in the summer of 1985 in Finland!) Haydn's sunny Op. 20, No 2 in C major will start off the program. Then, honouring their great mentor, Rostislav Dubinsky, they will perform Shostakovich's 8th quartet. They will end the program with Beethoven's transcendent Op. 127 in E-flat major.

All concert ticket holders are invited to attend the celebration immediately following the concert in the School of Music.

Tickets for this concert are by donation with all proceeds going to the B.K. Weigel Fund in support of continued excellence in Chamber Music at UVic's School of Music. Suggested donation $10-$50.
