Boston String Quartet Presents String Circus and the Beatles!

Boston String Quartet Presents String Circus and the Beatles!

It’s the Beatles dressed up in a Circus! Boston String Quartet to present “String Circus” featuring the Music of Sergeant Pepper and the Beatles! This fall, the Beatles receive a completely new treatment when the Boston String Quartet unveils their much anticipated 3rd annual concert series, “String Circus,” following close on the heels of their latest series, “WorldSong”. Familiar songs such as A Day in the Life, Fixing a Hole, and for the Benefit of Mr Kite receive their first ever performance by a string quartet. Each piece will be accompanied by a video screen that will add visual images to the performance. The Boston String Quartet will also be premiering four completely original pieces on the program written by each of the four quartet members. The Boston String Quartet is one of very few string ensembles forging new territory in the string world by writing all original music and arrangements.
