Works to be performed include Robert Schumann’s Quartet in A Major, Leoš Janácek’s Quartet No. 2, "Intimate Letters," and Ludvig van Beethoven’s Quartet in C Major, Op. 59, No. 3.

Tickets for the general public are $15, and may be purchased at the VAPA office. Students, faculty and staff may be admitted free with school identification.
