Founded by Canadian-born first violinist Geoff Nuttall and violist Lesley Robertson, brilliant stewards and teachers of the classical canon and the collaborative chamber form, the St. Lawrence String Quartet continues its robust multiyear Stanford University residency with three Stanford Live concerts and two free events.
