2018 – 2019 Season


2018 – 2019 Season Information.

The second concert in our 2018-2019 series takes place on Saturday, December 1, 2018 and features the Madawaska String Quartet. The quartet is made up of Sarah Fraser Raff, violin; Jeewon Kim, violin; Anna Redekop, viola; and Amber Ghent, cello. The program will include Haydn’s String Quartet Op. 20 No. 5 in F minor, Shostakovich’s String Quartet No. 3 in F minor and Leclair’s Sonata for two Violins, Op. 3 No. 5.

Hailed for their “astonishing talent” (Musicworks Magazine), the Madawaska Quartet performs pieces from the mainstream to performance art, and from the Baroque to the present-day. After eleven years of experience as an internationally performing string quartet, in 2012 the MSQ expanded to become the Madawaska Ensemble as a result of collaborations over several years with two fabulous pianists in Leslie Kinton and Brett Kingsbury. The Ensemble adds to the string quartet repertory works for strings and piano, along with featured guest Artists including clarinettist Guy Yehuda in 2013.

The Madawaska Quartet has worked as chamber music faculty at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto, also performing as part of its “Great Artist Series,” and has given workshops for students and emerging composers at the University of Toronto, York University, the Array New Music Centre, the Composers’ Guild of Canada, and the Canadian Contemporary Music Workshop. As champions of Canadian composers and their works, the MSQ has premiered more than thirty new pieces. They have acted as ensemble in residence at both the Array New Music Centre and the Music Gallery in Toronto
