Alexander Quartet

Founded in New York City in 1981, the Alexander String Quartet has been based in San Francisco since 1989, although its extensive annual concert tours have taken the musicians to five continents, from Lincoln Center to Georgia (the former Soviet one) and to the Philippines. They are known for their collaborations—with both performers and composers.  The quartet has performed more than 25 commissioned works by important contemporary composers like frequent collaborator Robert Greenberg and Wayne Peterson, recipient of the Pulitzer Prize.  According to The Boston Globe, the Alexander Quartet regularly delivers “dream-come-true performances, impressing with their sure ensemble, lyricism, accurate pitch, handsome sound and technical fluidity.”

Tickets for The Alexander Quartet can be purchased at the event or go to www.lvartsboxoffice.com or www.cmsob.org.

This concert is jointly presented with The Chamber Music Society of Bethlehem.
