Saint John String Quartet

“Hidden Treasures” (June 1992), the debut CD from the Saint John String Quartet, was touted by Bob Kerr of CBC Vancouver’s “Off The Record“ as “one of the most satisfying and pleasurable CDs to appear this year.” The Saint John String Quartet’s active concert schedule of more than 125 concerts a year has taken them throughout Canada, the US, Europe, Japan, Hong Kong, and China. The Quartet has played for the Prime Minister of Canada, Prince Charles and Queen Elizabeth the Second and at prestigious festivals such as the Tochigi Music Festival in Japan, the Arcady festival in the USA and the Forbidden City Festival in Beijing China. In 1995, the group presented the first chamber music concert on the World Wide Web. “The Saint John String Quartet is full of musical energy and ensemble strength,” (Joanna Manning)
