Lovers of chamber music don’t have to wait until summer to get their fix of the gorgeous blend of a string quartet.
Tickets are on sale now for “Winter Strings,” the Methow Valley Chamber Music Festival’s first event for its 25th season, on Feb. 1, 2020.
Festival Artistic Director Kevin Krentz has assembled a consummate quartet for the winter concert, featuring Rachel Lee Priday and Helen Kim on violin, Christine Grossman on viola, and Krentz on cello.
The program will feature the exciting and virtuosic Mendelssohn String Quartet in D Major and the beautiful and haunting Shostakovich String Quartet No. 8 in C Minor, among other works.
Tickets for Winter Strings start at $30 and are available at www.methowmusicfestival.org. Thirty-five lucky concertgoers can score a Golden Ticket, which combines the music with a three-course dinner after the concert — with the musicians — at the Arrowleaf Bistro in Winthrop.
“Winter Strings” is at 6 p.m. at The Merc Playhouse in Twisp.
