After several years without being presented as a quartet, the hand-crafted priceless pieces of history spanning more than 400 years will be featured in an additional concert on Sunday, May 1, 2022, following a sold out performance.
From a violin smuggled out of France for safekeeping during the Second World War and another once owned by a world-famous musician, to an extremely rare viola commissioned by Pope Paul the Fifth, and a cello lost in time for decades in a dusty attic in the Earl of Plymouth’s castle in England, the Amati instruments are true treasures.
Date: Sunday, May 1, 2022
Time: 10:30am coffee/tea, 11am performance
Location: Diefenbaker Canada Centre, University of Saskatchewan
The event is open to USask students, staff, faculty, and alumni, as well as members of the community. Tickets will be limited due to the size of the seating area and can be purchased here: https://diefenbaker.usask.ca/amati
Please note: All campus visitors are expected to follow USask health and safety guidelines and will be required to wear 3-ply single-use masks in indoor spaces.
