A cultural cornerstone of Stanford, the world-acclaimed St. Lawrence String Quartet continues its fabled partnership with the University, directing the music department’s Chamber Music Program, concertizing at Stanford Live, hosting a popular summer seminar, and running the Emerging String Quartet Program. In their final performance of the 2019–20 season, the SLSQ join forces with award-winning pianist Gilles Vonsattel.
Founded in 1989, the St. Lawrence String Quartet will mark their 30th anniversary season with three stunning Sunday performances in the Stanford Live 2019–20 season. In September, catch the SLSQ with guest oboist James Austin Smith—then in in January of 2020, the SLSQ perform a program of Beethoven and John Adams.
