New Orford String Quartet
April 21, 2023 - April 22, 2023
Presented by Algoma Conservatory Concerts – Classical Series
One of Canada’s finest string quartets. The sound will be stunning in The Loft.
Four musicians with equally stellar pedirees formed the New Orford String Quartet with the goal of developing a new model for a touring string quartet. Their concept – to bring four elite orchestral leaders and soloists together on a regular basis over many years to perform chamber music at the highest level – has resulted in a quartet that maintains a remarkably fresh perspective while bringing a palpable sense of joy to each performance. The Toronto Star has described this outcome as “nothing short of electrifying.
The New Orford String Quartet has seen astonishing success, giving annual concerts for national CBC broadcast and receiving unanimous critical acclaim, including two Opus Awards for Concert of the Year, and a 2017 JUNO Award for Best Classical Album. Recent seasons have featured return engagements in Chicago, Montreal and Toronto, as well as their New York City debut on Lincoln Center’s Great Performers series.
Friday & Saturday, April 21st & 22nd – 7:30 pm @ The Loft
