SNB VIRTUOSO SERIES: YOUTHFUL ROMANCE.

Saint John Arts Centre, 20 Peel Plaza.

The ever youthful Saint John String Quartet will brighten your February with a concert centred around the String Quartet Op 2 by the then youthful and ever romantic Felix Mendelssohn. Also on the program is a String Quartet by Mozart and a modern wedding suite by the Canadian composer, Glick.  Glick wrote this suite when he was a youthful 24 and continued to compose for another 44 years. But both Mozart and Mendelssohn retained a genuine youthful compositional style, with both regrettably dying in their 30’s. Tickets available at the Imperial Theatre, or at the Door.  $26 adults/$10 students/ Children free. Symphony@nbnet.nb.ca  (5060 634-8379                         www.symphonynb.com
