Noon Hour Concert: Factory Arts String Quartet
Entitled Dark Tales, this concert features The Raven by Canadian legend Alexina Louie, André Caplet’s Conte Fantastique (inspired by Poe’s The Masque of Red Death) and Debussy’s mysterious and powerful String Quartet, Op. 10. Guest artist & harpist Lori Gemmell will also appear. Formed in 2010, the Factory Arts String Quartet serves as the core ensemble for the music series INNERchamber, held at Factory163 in Stratford, Ontario. Comprised of individuals with extensive national and international résumés, the quartet (Andrew Chung and Julie Baumgartel -violins, Brandon Chui -viola, Ben Bolt-Martin - cello) has been praised for their high energy performances and unique approach to programming at events in Stratford, and at series and festivals throughout Ontario.
