For Immediate Release
WATERLOO – Wilfrid Laurier University will welcome four young-artist quartets as part of the 24th QuartetFest May 27 to June 12 on the university’s Waterloo campus.
A series of concerts and multiple chamber music workshops will be held throughout QuartetFest, a non-profit event that helps young musicians from around the world refine their talents. These aspiring professional chamber musicians will travel from across Canada and abroad to learn from some of the best chamber musicians Canada has to offer.
QuartetFest offers intensive one-on-one coaching sessions to its young artists, along with an accompanying professional concert series. The five QuartetFest concerts will include performances from the QuartetFest Young Artists, the Penderecki String Quartet (PSQ), guest instructors, the Jose White Quartet, David Gillham (violin) and Chiharu Iianuma (piano), as well as a number of accompanying musicians.
