Blue Engine String Quartet to Perform at the Festival Theatre on Saturday, November 5
The Blue Engine String Quartet is the musical attraction at the Acadia Performing Arts Series on Saturday, November 5 at 7:30pm at Festival Theatre in Wolfville. The quartet features Jennifer Jones and Anne Simons, violin; Alexandra Bates, viola; and Hilary Brown, cello.
The Blue Engine String Quartet was formed in 1997 as the core ensemble of the Nova Scotia chamber music series, Blue Engine Music. While Blue Engine holds true to classical roots, performing many of the masterworks of the string quartet repertoire, the quartet has also worked closely with important contemporary Canadian composers.
Their program for November 5 includes European classics by Mozart and Dvorak, and adds a splash of South America with selections by Heitor Villa-Lobos and Astor Piazolla. Tickets are $26 for adults and $20 for students.
