“It’s a modern string quartet that brings flexibility, dramatic fire and...a hint of rock ‘n’ roll energy...”

Los Angeles Times

11.15.2021 Update – Fontana is extremely disappointed to announce the Saint Lawrence String Quartet has cancelled their November 19 appearance here in Kalamazoo. The quartet has immediately cancelled all near-term commitments due to health concerns.

We look forward to rescheduling this amazing concert opportunity for a new date in 2022. Patrons who purchased SLSQ tickets may request a credit or refund by calling the Community Box Office at 269-250-6984.

“Modern,” “dramatic,” “superb,” “wickedly attentive,” “with a hint of rock 'n roll energy” are just a few ways critics describe the musical phenomenon that is the Saint Lawrence String Quartet. The Quartet is renowned for the intensity of its performances, its breadth of repertoire, and its commitment to concert experiences that are at once intellectually exciting and emotionally alive.

Established in Toronto in 1989, SLSQ quickly earned acclaim at top international chamber music competitions and was soon playing hundreds of concerts per year worldwide. It established an ongoing residency at Spoleto Festival USA, made prize-winning recordings for EMI of music by Schumann, Tchaikovsky, and Golijov, earning two Grammy nominations and a host of other prizes before being appointed ensemble-in-residence at Stanford University in 1998.
