On Saturday, October 28, 2017, Whitehorse Concerts will present The Rolston String Quartet, featuring Luri Lee, violin; Jeffrey Dyrda, violin; Hezekiah Leung, viola and Jonathan Lo, cello

First Prizewinner of the prestigious 2016 Banff International String Quartet Competition, the Rolston String Quartet has become Canada’s newest ensemble to attract attention on the international stage.  As Germany’s Südwest Press stated of their recent performance, “an impressive, deeply serious interpretation…highly sensitive, delicately transparent. A musical sound treasure, blissful.”

The Rolston String Quartet was formed in the summer of 2013 at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity’s Chamber Music Residency. They are named after the Canadian violinist Thomas Rolston, founder and long-time director of the Music and Sound Programs at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity. They were the only ensemble to be featured on CBC’s 2016 list of hot Canadian classical musicians under 30.

Please join us at 7:00 in the Studio Theatre of The Yukon Arts Centre for our pre-concert artist talk conducted by Danette Readman. The concert begins at 8:00 pm.
