Event Description

The Pacifica Quartet will be performing on Sunday at the Howeland Center in an all-Beethoven program. Three quartets, one each from the early, middle , and late periods of Beeethoven's work, and all exciting and sumptuous to listen to. The Pacifica is recognized for its virtuosity, exuberant performance style, and often-daring repertory choices. The award-winning ensemble has gained international stature as one of the finest groups performing today. Recently named quartet-in-residence at the Metropolitan Museum of Art following the Guarneri String Quartet, the Pacifica was named Ensemble of the Year by Musical America, and received the 2009 Grammy Award for Best Chamber Music Performance.

The Pacifica Quartet tours extensively throughout the United States, Europe, Asia, and Australia, and performs in the world's major concert halls.

An ardent advocate of contemporary music, the Pacifica Quartet commissions and performs many new works.

There will be a reception afterwards.
