Canceled: Takács Quartet

 

As the Takács Quartet enters its 45th year, it returns to Ann Arbor with a change in personnel: Richard O’Neill will join the ensemble as its new violist, replacing Geraldine Walther, who retires after 15 years with the group. The intrepid ensemble returns to Ann Arbor in three abbreviated performances with limited capacity due to social distancing guidelines.

Please note, this event has been modified with additional dates and times and modified seating:

The Takács Quartet will present three performances on Fri 10/16 at 8 pm; Sat 10/17 at 8 pm; and Sun 10/18 at 4 pm. These concerts will be presented in Rackham Auditorium with significantly reduced seating capacities, and subscribers will have the option to choose which performance they wish to attend. The concert will be presented without intermission.

The Friday and Saturday programs will also be live-streamed.

Please note, Jeremy Denk will not be joining the Quartet for these performances
