MOSCOW, Idaho — Jan. 15, 2021 —The University of Idaho’s Auditorium Chamber Music Series (ACMS) will present events this spring featuring world-renowned artists St. Lawrence String Quartet and Chanticleer.

Join the quartet for free educational events this month that are open to the public. Zoom registration is required.

Save the dates for upcoming concerts:

  • Sunday, March 28 — St. Lawrence String Quartet: Performing since 1989, this Grammy-nominated string quartet (two violins, viola and cello) has earned acclaim at top international chamber music competitions. The concert at 4 p.m. will be livestreamed on Facebook.
  • Wednesday, April 14 — Chanticleer: Returning to Moscow with its program “Love, always,” this renowned 12-member male a cappella choir will perform a range of music from Morley and Palestrina to Whitney Houston, unified by a common theme.

ACMS, a program in the College of Letters, Arts and Social Sciences, will determine whether the Chanticleer concert will be held in person about two months prior to the event. Check auditoriumseries.org, Facebook and Instagram for updates.

Due to the uncertainty of in-person events, ACMS is not offering season tickets. Individual tickets for an in-person concert, should it occur, are $25 for general admission, $20 for patrons ages 60 and older and $10 for students. Virtual concerts are free. Donations are welcome at donate.auditoriumseries.org.
