Chamber Music Society of Detroit presents The Juilliard String Quartet
FARMINGTON HILLS – The award-winning Juilliard String Quartet will perform at 8 p.m. Nov. 17 at the Seligman Performing Arts Center. The Center is located at 22305 West 13 Mile Road (at the corner of Lahser and 13 Mile Road), Beverly Hills, on the campus of the Detroit Country Day School.
The internationally renowned Quartet, featuring Joel Smirnoff and Ronald Copes, violins; Samuel Rhodes, viola, and Joel Krosnick, cello, has long been recognized as the quintessential American string quartet. One of the oldest string quartets in existence, the Grammy Award-winning group is now entering its 61st season. It has performed over 500 works, including more than 60 premieres.
The Quartet’s 2007-2008 season includes a number of special performances, both in the U.S. and abroad, in celebration of Elliott Carter’s 100th birthday. Mr. Carter is a composer with whom the Quartet has had an extraordinary and lengthy relationship.
In 1986, the Quartet was inducted into the Hall of Fame of the National Academy for Recording Arts and Sciences and in 1997, its members were named “Musicians of the Year” by Musical America. Last spring, the ensemble was featured in a “Live From Lincoln Center” telecast at the Juilliard School’s centennial gala program. The Quartet also had the honor of playing for Queen Sofia on her matched set of inlaid Stradivari instruments at the Palacio Real.
Single concert tickets are $43 to $75, students are $25. Single tickets for all 2007-2008 concerts may be purchased by calling the Chamber Music Society of Detroit Ticket Service at (248) 855-6070.
