Lafayette String Quartet News:

Dear Family, Friends, Colleagues and Students,

After what has been an amazing almost four decades working and performing together, we have decided to give our final performance as the Lafayette String Quartet in August of 2023.

We plan to continue fully until then with several projects; commissions, recordings and performances, and are excited to continue encouraging future generations of musicians and music lovers.

It is with immense gratitude that we came to this decision, and wish to acknowledge the many people and institutions who have inspired, mentored and supported us throughout these very rich years of our lives and career together.

We look forward to connecting with you soon, and hope to see you in person whenever that is possible!


Ann, Sharon, Joanna and Pam

Their residency at the University of Victoria is rich in local performances and community involvement. Their concerts in Canada and abroad are hailed as “Passionate, riveting, and with flawless ensemble.”
