The Minneapolis Guitar Quartet, one of the world's leading guitar ensembles, will perform at Eastern Illinois University on Sunday, Jan. 31.
The concert will begin at 4 p.m. in the Doudna Fine Arts Center's Recital Hall.
With passion, style and musical sophistication borrowing from the best chamber music and string quartet traditions, the Minneapolis Guitar Quartet balances a wide array of first-rate repertoire ranging from Renaissance and Baroque to Spanish, Latin American and Romantic, plus highly imaginative newly commissioned contemporary works.
Since forming in 1986, the group has performed throughout the United States both in recital and with orchestra.
The EIU performance, which has been underwritten by the EIU Classical Music Series, is presented in partnership with the EIU music department. A CD signing and reception will follow the performance.
Tickets -- $15 for the general public, $12 for senior citizens and EIU employees, and $7 for students -- may be purchased in the Doudna Fine Arts Center box office (217-581-3110) from 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, or one hour before each performance. Tickets may also be reserved via e-mail at email@example.com.
The Doudna Fine Arts Center, a division of EIU's College of Arts and Humanities, is located one block west of Ninth Street at Garfield Avenue in Charleston.
