Music Building (MB)
Room: von Kuster Hall

We're honoured to welcome back the acclaimed Musicians from Marlboro chamber music tour to the Don Wright Faculty of Music at Western University. 

Celebrating its seventh decade of performances, the Musicians from Marlboro touring program was created as an extension of Vermont’s Marlboro Music Festival.

Viola, Viola by 2022 Marlboro Composer-in-Residence George Benjamin features on the season-opening tour program, which also includes Felix Mendelssohn’s exuberant E-flat Major Quartet and Lyric for Strings by George Walker, the first Black composer to win the Pulitzer Prize for Music. 

Musicians from Marlboro tours are noted not only for their joyous and thoroughly prepared performances but also for offering valuable touring experience to artists at the beginning of their careers and for featuring programs of unusual as well as beloved chamber repertoire. 

Planned program:

Joseph Haydn: String Quartet in G Major, Op. 77, No. 1
George Benjamin: Viola Viola
George Walker: Lyric for Strings 
Felix Mendelssohn: Quartet in E-flat Major, Op. 44, No. 3


Maria Ioudenitch, violin
Claire Bourg, violin
Beth Guterman Chu, viola
Hayang Park, viola
Christoph Richter, cello

Musicians from Marlboro violist Beth Guterman Chu will give a viola masterclass with Western Music students the following morning.

This concert is generously supported by Serenata Music (Renée Silberman and Ted Medzon).

Sincere thanks to Dr Güneş Ege who supports the Marlboro Music Festival Tours.
