Caledon Chamber Concerts: Madawaska String Quartet

Submitted to Just Sayin' Caledon

The final concert in our 2022-2023 season takes place on Saturday, April 29, 2023 at 7:30 PM and features the Madawaska String Quartet. The program will include works by Mozart, Schubert and Dvorak. Members of the quartet are: Sarah Fraser Raff and Jeewon Kim, violins; guest artist Caitlin Boyle, viola; and Amber Ghent, cello.

Founded in 2001 and hailed for their “astonishing talent” (Musicworks Magazine), the Madawaska Quartet performs pieces from the mainstream to performance art, and from the Baroque to the present-day as an international string quartet.

With a roster of collaborators as diverse as their repertoire, the Madawaska Quartet has appeared with artists such as Sopranos Adrianne Pieczonka and Measha Brueggergosman, pianist Jan Lisiecki, singer/songwriter Bob Wiseman, and dancer/choreographer Julia Aplin.  They have performed in major international festivals as the Festival Iberoamericano in Puerto Rico, the Festival of the Sound, Guelph fest, the Elora Festival, 21C festival at Koerner Hall, and Ottawa Chamberfest.

The Madawaska Quartet has worked as chamber music faculty at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto, and has given workshops for students and emerging composers at the University of Toronto, York University, the Composers’ Guild of Canada, and the Canadian Contemporary Music Workshop.
As champions of Canadian composers and their works, the Quartet has premiered more than thirty new pieces. They have acted as ensemble-in-residence at Array New Music Centre, Music Gallery, and the University of Toronto Scarborough.

The concert takes place at St. James Anglican Church, Caledon East.
