Sitka String Quartet coming to Rossland!
February 24 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm PST
Join us at the Rossland Miners Hall on Friday, February 24th for the Rossland Council for Arts and Culture presentation of: Sitka String Quartet! We hate to end our Performance Series season but at least we get the pleasure of welcoming this talented group of women to the stage. Sitka String Quartet was formed by friends and colleagues in the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra. After years of playing together in the larger ensemble, and sharing numerous concerts as chamber musicians within the VSO Chamber Players, it was a natural extension of their like-minded musical curiosity, open-heartedness, and a fearless willingness to explore quartet repertoire across many genres that propelled these four musicians to form a professional quartet. They have enjoyed shared and individual performances in Italy, France, Germany, Denmark, Poland, Austria, Japan, China, Korea, Iraq, Lebanon, and Australia. Their affection for British Columbia has kept them living within a few kilometres of one another, and they are proud to perform in their home, BC, whenever the opportunity arises. Memorable live performances within the last ten months include an outdoor performance on Grouse Mountain near Vancouver, and performances at the Firehall Theatre, and High Beams Dreams in Gibsons, BC. Help us welcome Cassandra Bequary, Karen Gerbrecht, Emilie Grimes, and Olivia Blander as Sitka String Quartet! One thousand thank-you’s to our generous sponsors this season including Teck Trail Operations Ltd, ITS Consulting, the City of Rossland, the BC Touring Council, the BC Arts Council and the Province of British Columbia.
