One of the world’s finest chamber ensembles, nine-time Grammy winners, and longtime friends of our Performing Arts Series, the Emerson String Quartet visits our campus on their farewell tour. In this, their 33rd and final Middlebury appearance, they play quartets by Shostakovich and Ravel, Walker’s Lyric for Strings, and our Music Accord co-commission Drink the Wild Ayre by Sarah Kirkland Snider.
Not only are the quartet members Middlebury College honorary degree recipients, but their beloved 42-year long relationship with our campus and community is one of the crowning achievements in our series’ 104-year history.
“With musicians like this, there must be some hope for humanity.”—The Times (London)
