VAS Presents: Fischoff Chamber Music: Fine Arts Center M114 Salter Hall, 4:00PM - 5:00PM
The Fischoff National Chamber Music Association sponsors the nation's largest chamber music competition, and is America’s premier educational chamber music competition.
The Donald Sinta Quartet, First Prize Winner of the Concert Artists Guild Competition, has earned praise from audiences and critics alike for its virtuosic performances, compelling recordings and distinctive repertoire. Hailed as “…a tight-knit ensemble exploding with power and virtuosity and an un-concealable ambition to connect with its newly found listeners” (Boston Musical Intelligencer), the DSQ performs entirely from memory, which strengthens an already palpable connection with its audiences. Named for its mentor, legendary University of Michigan Saxophone Professor Donald Sinta, the quartet’s competition successes in addition to Concert Artists Guild include Gold Medal at the Fischoff Competition, 1st Prize at the 2017 M-Prize Chamber Arts Competition in Ann Arbor, the Grand Prize and 1st Place of the Coleman Chamber Competition, and 1st Prize in the North American Saxophone Alliance Quartet Competition.
Catholic Mass: Chapel Chapel, 6:00PM - 7:00PM
