"Anyone who loves music can never be quite unhappy."
These are the words of Franz Schubert, our featured composer for the first Xenia Concert of the season. For this program, the Cecilia String Quartet will take the listener on an enthralling journey through Schubert's epic and masterful String Quartet No. 14, with a sprinkling of some Moments Musicaux along the way.
This concert is designed to appeal to, and be welcoming of, children on the autism spectrum and their families. We welcome you to enjoy this incredible music with us!
Currently the James D. Stewart Quartet-in-Residence at the University of Toronto Faculty of Music, the multi-prize winning Cecilia String Quartet (CSQ) has an extensive history of creating and presenting entertaining and educational music programs to young people and families across Canada, the USA, Italy, and France. Their concert performances have been lauded as "powerful" (Chicago Sun-Times) and full of "emotional intensity"(Oberhessische Zeitung, Alsfeld Germany).
