A Message from the St. Lawrence String Quartet

"The St. Lawrence String Quartet has been deeply moved by the tremendous outpouring of love and support from the musical community following the death of our beloved partner Geoff Nuttall.  We have decided to create necessary space to grieve, process and reflect, and will not be performing concerts during this period.  We appreciate everyone’s understanding during this difficult time, and will issue a further statement when our future plans have clarified."
