A President's Inauguration Week Special Performance

The Department of Music and the College of Arts and Sciences are pleased to announce an event that will take place on Wednesday, October 16 as part of the President’s Inauguration Week.  Please join us as we present the UST Artists-in-Residence and Grammy Award winning Parker Quartet.  The string quartet will perform an informal concert in Scooter’s, located in the Anderson Student Center from noon – 1 p.m. on the 16th.   

The Parker Quartet has rapidly distinguished itself as one of the preeminent ensembles of its generation. The New York Times hailed the quartet as "something extraordinary," and the Boston Globe acclaims their "warm and smoothly blended tone and meticulous attention to details in balance and phrasing."  Known throughout the world, the Parker Quartet has given performances in major venues such as Carnegie Hall, the Library of Congress, the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, Wigmore Hall in London, Musikverein in Vienna, and the Seoul Arts Center.
