March 19, 2007

MILWAUKEE – Quartet San Francisco brings a unique twist to the traditional string ensemble Friday, March 30, 2007, at 8 p.m. in the Schwan Concert Hall at Wisconsin Lutheran College. Quartet San Francisco concerts deliver an irresistible mixture of genre-bending styles that defy all preconceptions. Its repertoire, although solidly grounded in traditional string quartet fare, also serves up Big Band, Latin and Jazz with infectious enthusiasm and incredible technique.

Since its concert debut in 2001, Quartet San Francisco has offered its unique fare of musical styles to local, national and international audiences in a variety of venues that include concert halls, jazz festivals, museums and classrooms. As 2007 double Grammy nominees for its latest release, “Látigo,” Quartet San Francisco expresses itself in agility and standout virtuosic playing. Based in the San Francisco area, Quartet San Francisco is Jeremy Cohen and Kayo Miki, violinists, Emily Onderdonk, violist, and Joel Cohen, cellist.

Quartet San Francisco is sponsored in part by the Wisconsin Arts Board. The performance will be held in the Schwan Concert Hall located in the college’s Center for Arts and Performance at 8815 W. Wisconsin Ave. Tickets are $25 general, $22 seniors and $10 students. To purchase tickets, call the WLC box office at (414) 443-8802 or visit wlc.edu/arts.
