The Canadian Guitar Quartet will perform at Hope College on Tuesday, March 31, at 7:30 p.m. in the Knickerbocker Theatre in downtown Holland.

“Classical Guitar Magazine” has praised the ensemble with “The Canadian Guitar Quartet dazzled the audience with their second-to-none ensemble playing,” and England’s “Classical Guitar Magazine” described the quartet’s performance as “…fantastic, spirited playing and sheer inventiveness.”

Since its debut in 1999, the Canadian Guitar Quartet has toured extensively in North and South America, establishing a reputation as one of the finest guitar ensembles in the world. The quartet has appeared with orchestras across Canada, and has recorded three critically acclaimed CDs.

The Canadian Guitar Quartet has been broadcast on both CBC and Radio-Canada, had a special performance feature on Bravo! Television, was featured in a webcast at Chicago’s Northwestern University, and appeared on CBC’s overseas networks.

The Canadian Guitar Quartet’s first concert at the 92 Street Y in New York, part of the Art of the Guitar series, was extremely well received. Don Witter Jr., of the New York Classical Guitar Society, wrote: “The Canadian Guitar Quartet made one of the greatest New York City debuts of any artistic ensemble in decades … stunning !!!”
