Dublin Guitar Quartet to perform April 10 at Purdue

March 17, 2015  


WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – The Dublin Guitar Quartet will perform at 8 p.m. April 10 at Purdue University's Loeb Playhouse. This performance is presented by Purdue Convocations with Friends support from Mike and Pam Luenz.

Since its 2002 formation at the Dublin Conservatory of Music and Drama, the Dublin Guitar Quartet has commissioned new work, adapted contemporary pieces not originally written for guitar, and broadened both its range and tuning capabilities through the use of eight- and 11-string guitars, as well as specialized amplification. Their catalogue now includes work by Steve Reich, Gyorgi Ligeti, Philip Glass (with a soon-to-be-released recording of his recast string quartets) and Arvo Pärt (who collaborated on the quartet's arrangement of his "Summa," originally written for chorus).

All tickets are $15 and are available at the Stewart Center box office at 765-494-3933, 800-914-SHOW or online through www.convocations.org/tickets.

Initiated in 1902, Purdue Convocations is among the oldest collegiate performing arts presenters in the United States. Convocations brings a diverse array of world-class performances and intellectual encounters, connecting them to academic, local, and regional audiences through engaging educational opportunities.
