The Penderecki String Quartet

This event is from the archives of The Notice Board. The event has already taken place and the information contained in this post may no longer be relevant or accurate.

Canada’s renowned Penderecki String Quartet, presents a program of new works by composers from our own city and around the world! Each piece has a relevant relationship with the essential meaning of migration, which is the “movement from one part of something to another.” Some works engage with animal and bird migration, some with human migratory patterns and others with the migration of the human spirit from one state to another. In all cases, the composers are representative of a diverse and vibrant cross-section of our world and hope to give you an evening to reflect on our ever-changing landscape.

World premieres by Blackfoot composer and U of L graduate student Sonny-Ray Day Rider, local award-winning composer Lavina Kell Parker, and Music Dept. Chair Dr. Arlan N. Schultz.

There will be a pre-concert talk before the concert begins (7:30 pm).

Come see this world-class ensemble perform in this very special engagement.



All students are free (ticket registration needed) and general public $15.
