Due to the newly announced COVID restrictions for the month of January at the University we must postpone our January 9 & 10 performances with the Rolston SQ. We are working with the quartet and venue to find an alternate date, later in the season.
If this proves too challenging and we have to cancel this concert, refunds will automatically be processed. We apologize for this inconvenience and hope to see everyone again soon at the Rozsa Centre.
This is very disappointing news for everyone involved, so we kindly ask for your patience as we work with all parties to find a solution. The health of our audience and performers is our first priority.
With their debut recording, “Souvenirs” recently named BBC Music Magazine ‘recording of the year’, Canada’s Rolston String Quartet continues to receive acclamation and recognition for their musical excellence. As the 2018 recipient and first international ensemble chosen for the prestigious Cleveland Quartet Award from Chamber Music America, their accolades and awards precede them. In 2016, a monumental year, they won First Prize at the 12th Banff International String Quartet Competition, Grand Prize at the 31st Chamber Music Yellow Springs Competition, and Astral’s National Auditions. The Rolston SQ was formed in the summer of 2013 and they take their name from Canadian violinist Thomas Rolston, founder and long-time director of the Music and Sound Programs at the Banff Centre.
“Very quickly, they have achieved an elite status among the continent’s finest string quartets.” — Toronto Concert Reviews
