Morris, Minn. -- The last of the 2011-2012 Performing Arts Series (PAS) events, the Euclid Quartet will perform on Saturday, March 3, 2012 at 7:30 p.m. in Edson Auditorium.
The Euclid Quartet is a dynamic ensemble known for performances filled with personality and vibrant color. Originally from the U.S., Great Britain, Venezuela, and China, they have won many prizes at major competitions around the world and hold the prestigious Quartet Residency at Indiana University South Bend. The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review raved "The impressiveness
of the Euclid Quartet extended to all the styles. [Their] emotional and timbral richness brought to mind the old-world approach of the Guarneri Quartet. Devoted, expert and exhilarating." Ara Guzelimian, Artistic Advisor of Carnegie Hall, praised their "wonderful intensity, insight, and communicative strength."
In addition to the evening performance, the Euclid Quartet will present a master class on Saturday, March 3, 2012 at 1 p.m. in the Humanities Fine Arts Recital Hall. The class is free and open to the public.
