The Friends of Chamber Music was recently honored to be selected as a host in perpetuity of the triennial Banff International String Quartet Competition’s prestigious “Winner’s Tour.” We inaugurate this special relationship and celebrate the memory of beloved friend and board member, Myra Herron, by welcoming the Rolston String Quartet to Kiggins Hall. The Rolston String Quartet “…already belongs to a generation of string players performing at a level difficult to imagine in generations past” (The Toronto Star). First Prize winner of the prestigious 2016 Banff International String Quartet Competition, the RSQ has become Canada’s newest ensemble to attract attention on the international stage.  As Germany’s Südwest Press wrote of a recent performance, “an impressive, deeply serious interpretation…highly sensitive, delicately transparent. A musical sound treasure, blissful.”
