Thalea String Quartet Chamber Music Concert

Thalea String Quartet

Performance November 19, 2023

Fueled by the belief that chamber music is a powerful force for building community and human connection, the Thalea String Quartet has “never failed to deliver a stirring performance.” Calgary Herald.

Winners of the 2021 Ann Divine Educator Award from the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition, the members of the Thalea String Quartet have been celebrated for their innovative approach to education and community engagement. Part of their performance November 19, 2023 is a masterclass for conservatory students. The members of the Thalea String Quartet have presented masterclasses and workshops at institutions across North America and served as the Doctoral Fellowship String Quartet at the University of Maryland from 2020-2023.

Committed to shaping and contributing to the future of the string quartet repertoire, the Thalea String Quartet has premiered dozens of new works and has collaborated on new commissions with composers including Osvaldo Golijov, Paola Prestini, Anthony R. Green, Akshaya Avril Tucker, and Tanner Porter.

The artists providing this wonderful concert experience are Christopher Whitley (violin) from Toronto, Ontario, Canada, Kumiko (violin) from Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada; Lauren Spaulding (viola) is from San Antonio, Texas; and Alex Cox (cello) is from South Palm Beach, Florida.

Christopher and Kumiko perform on instruments generously on loan from the Canada Council for the Arts Musical Instrument Bank. Christopher performs on a 1900 Stefano Scarampella violin and Kumiko performs on an 1820 Joannes Franciscus Pressenda violin.

The Thalea String Quartet will provide a rich, adventurous and rewarding chamber music concert presented by Stockton’s Friends of Chamber Music. Come enjoy the concert.

Tickets are $25 and are available in the lobby of Faye Spanos Concert Hall at UOP starting at 2:00 pm, 30 minutes before the concert. Students of any age are admitted free.

The audience is invited to participate in a question and answer program with the artists in the concert hall following the concert.
