Summer Studio Outing

Next month we are going to have our very first studio outing! Students and their families are invited to join us for a live string quartet performance at Ravinia Festival on Saturday August 25th at 6pm. The Pacifica Quartet will be performing in the Bennett Gordon Hall and tickets are $10. We will be sitting near seats J 21 and J 22.

The Pacifica Quartet has been known as one of the finest chamber groups in the nation. In 2009 they received a Grammy Award for Best Chamber Music Performance. They are currently the quartet-in-residence at Indiana University and were formerly the quartet-in-residence at the University of Illinois where I studied under the tutelage of Simin Ganatra, the first violinist.
