GRINNELL, IA—The St. Lawrence String Quartet will perform on Thurs., Nov. 5 at 7:30 p.m. in Herrick Chapel on the Grinnell College campus.
The St. Lawrence String Quartet—violinists Geoff Nuttall and Scott St. John, violist Lesley Robertson, and cellist Christopher Costanza—is among the world-class chamber ensembles of its generation. Since winning both the Banff International String Quartet Competition and Young Concert Artists International Auditions in 1992, the quartet has entertained audiences with its spontaneous, passionate, and dynamic performances. In concert, they deliver traditional quartet repertoire and perform the works of living composers. Since 1998 they have held the position of Ensemble in Residence at Stanford University and have worked to open music to players and listeners in their annual summer chamber music seminar at Stanford.
