LAFAYETTE and SAGUENAY QUARTETS
Thursday, March 14, 2019 at 8 pm

The Lafayette has achieved more than 30 years as an ensemble – without a single change of personnel. Coaching with major quartets followed by important awards led to an enduring career. The LSQ have been artists-in-residence at the University of Victoria since 1991.

The Saguenay (formed in 1989 as the Alcan) has developed a reputation for excellence throughout Canada and internationally since its formation over twenty five years ago. Based in Chicoutimi, Québec, it receives the unconditional support of the Orchestre symphonique du Saguenay—Lac-Saint-Jean.

The two quartets have played together numerous times during the course of their quartet careers and have a special musical bond and creative friendship.
