Ton Beau String Quartet
Details: Where else can you enjoy opera stars in the making from the Faculty of Music, to emerging classical masters culled from the Eckhardt Gramatte National Music Competition to musicians from Toronto’s rich cultural diversity, the Sunday Concerts is your afternoon musical mash up!
The Ton Beau String Quartet was founded in 2010 by four friends studying at the University of Toronto. They have performed in the lunch time series Midday Mosaics and Hart House is delighted to feature them to the long standing Sunday Concert performance tradition.
Since forming three years ago, the group has traveled throughout Canada and the USA, presenting concerts as well as educational and outreach programs. They have performed at the Harbourfront Music Garden, Gallery 345, the Maureen Forrester Recital Hall at Wilfrid Laurier University, Dinkelspiel Auditorium at Stanford University, the Kitchener-Waterloo Chamber Music Society, the Banff Centre, and the St. Luke’s Gift of Music Concert Series in Creemore. In addition to their busy performing schedule, the Ton Beau Quartet are active teachers, and participate in numerous educational outreach presentations. The quartet has also collaborated with musicians from many other musical traditions, including performances with the folk band The Krüger Brothers, and in collaboration with Spectrum Music, a group of classical and jazz composers. The Ton Beau String Quartet are currently Quartet in Residence at the Arts and Letters Club of Toronto.
