Event Details

Enjoy an electrifying performance by Juno Award-winning New Orford String Quartet in a captivating afternoon of classical music. These four elite orchestral leaders – Andrew Wan, Jonathan Crow, Sharon Wei, and Brian Manker – come together to deliver the highest calibre of chamber music across North America, with special attention to smaller Canadian communities.

Immerse yourself in the timeless beauty of masterpieces from across the ages as these virtuosic musicians bring their exceptional talent and passion to your city, from the emotive intricacies of the Romantic era to contemporary Canadian works, including Commedia Dell’arte III, a composition by Montreal-based composer Ana Sokolović. Sokolović’s music, influenced by Balkan folklore, infuses playful imagery and draws inspiration from various artistic disciplines. Commedia Dell’arte III presents short caricatures of character archetypes from humorous to touching and sarcastic, inspired by street improv in Italy recounted from childhood.

Join us for an unforgettable afternoon of musical brilliance as the New Orford String Quartet breathes new life into classical masterpieces while showcasing the exciting possibilities of modern composition. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to witness the leading orchestra musicians join hands at our season finale in New Westminster.
