Having walked on stage together over 1,900 times in the past nineteen years, the St Lawrence String Quartet are now firmly established on the international stage.

In 1992, they won both the Banff International String Quartet Competition and Young Concert Artists International Auditions, launching them on a performing career that has taken them across North and South America, Europe, Asia and Australasia.

With their dynamic performing style, eloquent communication and beautiful sound, the New Zealand String Quartet have forged a major career in the busy international chamber music field, earning the acclaim of critics and the delighted response of audiences.

The quartet have particularly distinguished themselves through imaginative programming, insightful interpretations of the string quartet repertoire including cycles of composers’ music from Mozart to Berg, and the development of an international audience for important new works from New Zealand composers.

Tickets will be available from Ticketek.
