CSA Recital : Spektal String Quartet

The Spektral Quartet, one of the nation?s fastest-rising young string quartets and the ensemble-in-residence at the University of Chicago, returns to Goshen College Music Center on Friday, January 18th for a program of quartets by Mozart, Verdi, and Hugo Wolf in Rieth Recital Hall. The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. Spektral?s Friday concert and Saturday coachings of young musicians in the Music Center?s Youth Honors Orchestras are presented in part through the Lon and Kathryn Sherer Preparatory Music Endowment.

Spektral violinist Austin Wulliman, a Goshen native, received musical training as a youth in the Goshen College Strings Preparatory Program, a progenitor of what is now the Community School of the Arts. He also attended Goshen College before receiving degrees from Northwestern University and the University of Michigan.

The Sherer Endowment carries on the legacy established through their more than 60 combined years of teaching music, most of them at Goshen College. In addition to college teaching, Lon and Kathryn taught hundreds of pre-college students; Lon in violin and Kathryn in piano. Throughout their careers, they were advocates for making music accessible to young people. The activities of this endowment will continue to support their interests of accessibility and excellence in pedagogy in the life of the Goshen College Community School of the Arts.

Tickets: $7 adults, $5 seniors, available at the door one hour before the concert. All students K-college free. GC faculty/staff free with ID.
