ARMSTRONG AUDITORIUM HOSTS A NIGHT OF CLASSICS WITH THE JUILLIARD STRING QUARTET

The internationally acclaimed Juilliard String Quartet visits Edmond at the Armstrong Auditorium, performing classical masterpieces by Joseph Haydn, Shulamit Ran and Beethoven at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, January 15.

The Juilliard String Quartet’s founding vision is just as fresh and relevant to today’s ensemble as it was in 1946. Widely known as the “quintessential American string quartet,” the quartet was the first ensemble to play all six Bartok quartets in the United States and the first ensemble to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Recording Academy (Grammy Awards).

Praised by critics and audiences worldwide for bold interpretations of the canon classics, the quartet is one of the most recorded chamber ensembles touring today and has won Grammy Awards for recordings of the complete Bartok, late Beethoven, Schoenberg, Debussy and Ravel quartets.

“We are honored to present such a prestigious group. For a classical ensemble to be so lauded throughout the music industry really shows how they can connect with audiences. They will create a sublime experience for our patrons,” said Ryan Malone, Armstrong Auditorium concert manager.

Tickets to see the Juilliard String Quartet begin at $31 for balcony seating and $71 for orchestra. For more information on ticket options, subscriptions, group rates or current exhibits, please visit www.armstrongauditorium.org or call 405-285-1010.
