2017 – 2018 Season

 

2018 – 2019 Season Information is coming soon.

Caledon Chamber Concerts’ final concert for the 2017-2018 season takes place on Friday, April 13, 2018 and will feature the award winning Cecilia String Quartet (CSQ). The CSQ has announced that it will disband after this season so this concert will be one of the last opportunities to hear them.
Prize-winners at several international competitions, including Osaka (2008) and Bordeaux (2010), the CSQ were awarded First Prize at the 2010 Banff International String Quartet Competition (BISQC), where they also won the prize for the best performance of the commissioned work. Their commitment to new works can be seen through their project Celebrating Canadian Women in Music, a spotlight on a ‘quartet’ of immensely talented female Canadian composers that involved four new commissions that the CSQ premiered and performed across Canada, the United States, and Europe.
Enthusiastic educators and mentors to the next generation of chamber musicians, the CSQ members have held teaching posts at festivals, conservatories, and universities across Canada and the United States, both as an ensemble and as individuals.
Deeply committed to outreach, the CSQ began developing educational presentations on classical music and the string quartet while it served as String-Quartet-in-Residence at San Diego State University from 2007-2009. Since that time, the group has conducted hundreds of educational presentations across Canada, the United States, Italy, and France. The Quartet has presented for a wide variety of organizations, such as the Monarch School for Homeless Youth, Veteran’s Village for Homeless Veterans, Learning Through the Arts at the RCM, and the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory. CSQ also developed a series of concerts called Xenia Concerts that were customized to appeal to, and be welcoming of, children on the autism spectrum and their families.

The concert takes place at St. James’ Anglican Church, Caledon East at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $35 for adults and $15 for students 16 years and younger and may be purchased in advance at Forster’s Book Garden, Howard the Butcher and BookLore. A limited number of tickets may also be available at the door on the night of the concert. For more information call 905-880-2445.
