Their show will feature Beethoven’s Quartet in A Major, Op. 18, No. 5; Shostakovich’s Quartet No. 7; and Dvorak’s Quartet in C Major, Op. 61.

Their performance schedule will take them around Canada, the United States, South America and Europe.

“We are very fortunate to have the Dover Quartet come to Langley Community Music School as part of their winner’s tour to B.C.,” said LCMS artistic director of concerts Elizabeth Bergmann. “They represent the pinnacle of musical achievement for young performers.”

The Dover Quartet members say that they are really looking forward to connecting with audiences in Langley on Oct. 17.

The Dover Quartet recently won the grand prize in the Banff International String Quartet Competition at The Banff Centre.
