The Evergreen Carriage House Concert Series presents a

Magellan String Quartet at 8 p.m. on Friday, March 26, at

Winner of the 1998 Naumburg Chamber Music Award, the Magellan

Berg and Ravel.

Garrett, who lived at Evergreen House
from 1920 to 1952,
was a patron of the arts, who sponsored a string quartet in
residence each spring and fall
from 1928 to 1942.
