Description:
Musica Viva presents the Rolston String Quartet at the Moss Arts Center's Anne & Ellen Fife Theatre on Saturday, March 4, 2017.

Musica Viva welcomes for the first time the Rolston String Quartet. The 2016 First Prize winner of the prestigious Banff International Competition, the Rolston String Quartet was named among the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's 2016 "30 Hot Canadian Classical Musicians Under 30." The Calgary Herald says they "played affectionately, shifted colours with the mood of every phrase, and showed a caramel blend in tone that only makes you want to hear more."

A winner of Astral's 2016 National Auditions and the 2016 John Lad Prize, the quartet was also the Grand Prize winner of the Chamber Music Yellow Springs Competition, a prizewinner at the inaugural M-Prize Competition, and the Bordeaux International String Quartet Competition. The program will include Mozart´s in G Major String Quartet, Ravel’s String Quartet, and Beethoven's String Quartet, Op. 59 No. 2.

Tickets can be purchased online or at the Moss Arts Center Ticket Office the night of the show. To purchase tickets online, visit: http://www.musicaviva-swva.com/onlineorders.php

Note: Originally the Meccore String Quartet was scheduled to perform.

Musica Viva is organized to promote awareness and appreciation of chamber music specifically, and the arts in general. Since 2001 Musica Viva has been providing chamber music performances by internationally-acclaimed musicians for communities in the New River Valley and throughout Southwest Virginia.

We strive to provide five chamber music events per year. Musica Viva was created in recognition that access to the arts, in its many manifestations, is universally cited as central to the quality of life in a community.

Blacksburg-based Musica Viva is a registered 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization.
