The Edinburgh Quartet to Perform at Hopkins

The Edinburgh Quartet, one of Scotland's finest string ensembles, will perform works of Mozart, Weir and Beethoven at The Johns Hopkins University's Homewood campus on Wednesday, April 24, at noon.

For more than 36 years, this quartet has been one of the most successful in Britain, traveling widely throughout the United Kingdom and abroad. Its repertoire is firmly based in the mainstream of the European tradition, from the mid-18th century to the present day. In the field of contemporary music, it was awarded a Scottish Society of Composers Award for the promotion and encouragement of the work of living composers. Among their many recordings are works by Dvorak, Schubert, Haydn, Mendelssohn, Shostakovitch and Priaulx Rainier.

This performance is part of the Wednesday Noon Series presented by The Johns Hopkins University Office of Special Events. All programs in the series are held at noon in the Clipper Room of Shriver Hall on the university's Homewood campus at 3400 North Charles Street in Baltimore. Admission is free.

For information, call the Office of Special Events at (410) 516-7157.
