A concert classical fans won’t want to miss, see two powerhouse ensembles combine to perform Mendelssohn’s youthful masterpiece, the Octet in E-Flat Major.

It’s not often audiences have the opportunity to see two of America’s most prominent quartets join forces, but here’s your chance. Recognized for its virtuosity, exuberant performance style, and often-daring repertory choices, the Pacifica Quartet has gained international stature as one of the finest chamber ensembles performing today. And the Dover Quartet catapulted to prominence after sweeping the 2013 Banff International String Quartet Competition.

Catch the Dover and Pacifica Quartets April 29 and 30, 2018 at the Eckhardt-Gramatté Hall, Rozsa Centre, University of Calgary (206 University Court NW).
