Lily String Quartet plays The Arts Station on Nov. 16

The Lily String Quartet is a dynamic chamber ensemble dedicated to excellence.

This Canadian quartet was formed in 2005, and is recognized by audiences and critics alike as a top ensemble of Western Canada.  This bilingual group is comprised of Diane Lane on violin, Patricia Higgins on viola, and Andrea Case on cello, plus special guests Matt Heller on double bass and Sue Gould on piano. The program in Fernie will be Schubert’s Quintet, Dohnanyi’s Serenade for Strings and a bass quartet by Rossini.

Whether from the Alberta prairies, the city life of Calgary, or the beauty of Québec City, this group has brought together their varied experiences to produce a unified and tantalizing sound.  With the members of Lily String Quartet having individually trained at North America’s premiere universities and conservatories, they have a wealth of knowledge and experience that enriches the quartet.

A hallmark of Lily String Quartet’s work is collaboration; the group members have performed with a jazz trio, multiple Calgary-area choirs, music programs, schools, Indie-rock groups, folk performers and an accordion player, just to name a few.  Lily Quartet was invited to seminars at Juilliard School and Stanford University and performed in and helped develop an original musical with folk artist Lullaby Baxter.  The group toured Alberta with the Hutchinson Andrew Trio in the spring of 2013, Eastern Canada in the fall of 2012 and Western Canada in 2008; the Lilly String Quartet has performed both in concert and at educational outreach programs in seven out of ten Canadian provinces.  Don’t miss them when they come to Fernie on November 16 at 8 pm at The Arts Station.
