Lafayette and Saguenay Quartets
The Lafayette has achieved more than 30 years as an ensemble – without a single change of personnel. Coaching with major quartets followed by important awards led to an enduring career. The LSQ have been artists-in-residence at the University of Victoria since 1991.
The Saguenay (formed in 1989 as the Alcan) has developed a reputation for excellence throughout Canada and internationally; it is based in Chicoutimi, Québec.
The two quartets have played together numerous times during their quartet careers, creating a special musical bond and creative friendship.
