The Cheboygan Opera House opens again on Saturday, July 10, 7:00 pm after being dark for more than a year. The first performance will be presented by the world renowned American String Quartet.
“We are very lucky to have them come to Cheboygan,” said Bruce Gauthier, creator of the “Chamberfest” series of classical music. “It’s our good fortune that Cheboygan happened to be geographically convenient between two other tour stops.”
American String Quartet was founded by four students studying together in 1974 at the Julliard School. At that time they won the prestigious Coleman Prize, Naumburg Award (chamber music associations), and began a residency with Aspen Music Festival. Since that time, they have performed nationally and internationally, garnering high praise and top reviews from the international press.
“Even by European standards, they are perfect.”—Tiroler Tageszeitung (Innsbruck, Austria).
“Luxurious, beautifully sculptured performances”—The New York Times. “Americans certainly, but with a refined European style”—Giornale di Sicilia.
The group will be performing quartets by Beethoven and Ravel. American String Quartet is the first of three “Chamberfest” concerts scheduled for fall 2021.
Tickets for the American String Quartet concert are available now through the Opera House website, theoperahouse.org (click on Tickets), or during revised office hours, Tuesday to Friday 9:30 to noon. Additional information (231) 627-5432.
