Hickory – The Western Piedmont Symphony’s 55th season continues with the La Catrina Quartet, as part of this year’s Chamber Classics: Homecoming series.

Chamber Classics 2 with La Catrina Quartet, will be held in Drendel Auditorium at the SALT Block on Saturday, October 26th at 7:30 p.m. This all-Latin program includes pieces by Villa-Lobos, Piazzolla, D’Rivera, Plaza and Moleiro, and celebrates the upcoming Day of the Dead. Attendees will be sure to enjoy an evening of beautiful music performed by these exceptionally talented musicians.

If you can’t make the evening performance — join the La Catrina Quartet for lunch at our very popular Soup, Salad & Strings luncheon series at 11:45 am in the Keiser Community Room on Friday, October 25th at the SALT Block. Soup, Salad & Strings is an informal luncheon/concert that is perfect for concert goers who prefer daytime entertainment.

La Catrina was the third string quartet to ever hold a residency with the Hickory Metro String Quartet Residency program. The Hickory Metro String Quartet Residency is the only program of its kind in North Carolina; it brings numerous outreach programs to audiences of all ages in the region, and features world-class musicians.
