Summer strings at Shatford

A quartet of entertainers from this summer’s Strings the Thing music camp will be performing an eclectic mix of classic quartet literature

A quartet of entertainers from this summer’s Strings the Thing music camp will be performing an eclectic mix of classic quartet literature including movements from Mozart’s Divertimento No. 2, Beethoven’s Quartet No. 5 from the Opus 18 series and the Ravel Quartet, as well as unusual works such as Gershwin’s Prelude No. 2, the Waltzing Cat by Leroy Anderson, the Paragon Rag by Scott Joplin and Nocturne by Borodin.

The quartet is comprised of four string faculty from the summer music camp at the Shatford Centre, including local musicians Elizabeth Lupton and John Suderman and two musicians from the Fraser Valley, Calvin Dyck and Joel Stobbe. In addition, Pascal Piche, a violist who has just been accepted to McGill University will be joining the quartet for the performance of the Ravel Quartet.

Both Suderman and Lupton are members of the Okanagan Symphony Orchestra, and are sought after instructors in Penticton. Suderman lives in Kelowna and is also very active there as a violin instructor. Dyck and Stobbe are both members of the Vancouver Island Symphony in Nanaimo. This faculty concert takes place on July 5 in the Shatford Centre and tickets are $12 at the door. A second concert featuring the camp’s students takes place July 8.
