The Sonoma Classical Music Society will open its 10th concert season with a February 9 performance by the Alexander String Quartet at Vintage House.
The quartet, formed in New York, in 1981, now based in San Francisco, was the first American string quartet to win the London International String Quartet Competition, winning both the audience prize and the jury’s highest prize. The Alexander Quartet serves as the Ensemble in Residence of San Francisco Performances and as directors of the Morrison Chamber Music Center in the College of Creative Arts at San Francisco State University.
“The Alexanders are one of the great quartets of the world and they will be performing an all-Beethoven concert,” said Wally Breitman, society member and KSVY radio host. “It’s a superb program by a great quartet.” Tickets to the 3 p.m. concert are $10-$25, and available at Readers’ Books, Pharmaca and at the door. Vintage House is located at 264 First St. E. Find out more at 939.3683 or Sonomaclassical.org.
