Lafayette and Saguenay Quartets

March 14, 2019 @ 8:00 pm

Event Navigation

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, Quebec, it receives the unconditional support of the Orchestre symphonique du Saguenay-Lac Saint-Jean.

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