The University of Victoria and the Lafayette String Quartet are thrilled to be launching Canada’s first Masters degree program in String Quartet Performance. This new program allows previously formed quartets the opportunity to study as a group and individually with the Quartet in a two-year program. To celebrate, the LSQ is hosting a brunch at the Inn at Laurel Point on October 6. Sip on a glass of bubbly while enjoying the music of Brahms performed by the LSQ, renowned cellist Paul Katz of Cleveland Quartet fame, and violist Yariv Aloni, beloved by Victoria audiences. Executive Chef Takashi Ito has designed a spectacular brunch menu to accompany this event.
With stunning music, views overlooking the harbor, the beautiful gardens of the Inn at Laurel Point, and food prepared for you by one of the finest chefs in North America, this will be an event to remember! Proceeds from the fundraiser will go towards UVic’s Graduate String Quartet Scholarship Fund, and tax receipts will be available upon request.
