The first Irish tour by the international, multi award-winning Arcadia Quartet gets underway in Limerick later this month.

The quartet, fast becoming one of Europe’s leading string quartets with a host of international prizes under their belt, will perform for the final performance in the 2013 Castleconnell Concert Series in All Saints’ Church on November 26 at 8pm.

Hailing from Romania, this will be the Arcadia Quartet’s first visit to Ireland, where they will perform compositions by Joseph Haydn, Leoš Janáček and Claude Debussy.

“This tour has been organised by Wigmore Hall in London as part of the prize awarded to Arcadia Quartet for winning the 2012 London International String Quartet Competition,” said Tony Rodgers, programme co-ordinator.

“I am delighted the All Saints’ audience in Castleconnell will be the first to hear this great young quartet in Ireland,” he added.

Tickets for the upcoming concert are priced at €15 and will be available on the door. For more call 061-407421.
