5.     Spektral Quartet will perform this Sunday:

The Spektral Quartet, one of Chicago's hottest young string quartets, returns to Sauder Concert Hall on Palm Sunday, March 29 for a performance of Joseph Haydn's "Seven Last Words of Christ." The concert will begin at 4:00 p.m.


Working from the orchestral score, Chicago-based arranger Joe Clark has been conspiring with Spektral since 2012 to resurrect woodwind lines and rebuild dubious chord voicings in an effort to return the quartet closer to the integrity of Haydn's original orchestrated version.


The performance will also feature multimedia artwork displays coordinated by Jo-Ann Brant, and readings by Paul Keim. This Palm Sunday performance promises to be a memorable one.


Tickets are $15 and can be purchased either online at http://www.goshen.edu/tickets or by calling (574) 535-7566. Goshen College students’ admission is free with ID.
