The Juilliard String Quartet, widely known as the quintessential American string quartet, will perform at UNCG on Friday, Oct. 27, at 8 p.m. as part of the 2017-18 University Concert and Lecture Series (UCLS).

The quartet, founded in 1946 at the Juilliard School in New York City, will also offer a free master class to the public from 10 a.m. to noon on Friday. Both the class and the performance will take place in the Recital Hall in the UNCG Music Building.

For UNCG students, the master class and evening performance offer an opportunity to learn firsthand from top musicians playing at the highest level.

“One of the best ways for students to grow as musicians is to listen to as many great live performances as they can,” said Marjorie Bagley, professor of violin in UNCG’s College of Visual and Performing Arts. “Students have the chance to really open their ears to the variety of repertoire and performance styles on the modern stage. I think the audience members will find themselves drawn in as they watch the quartet interact onstage.”

Tickets are $30 for adults, $25 for seniors, $10 for non-UNCG students and $5 for UNCG students. Tickets can be purchased at the Triad Stage box office online, by phone at 336-272-0160 and in person at 232 S. Elm St. in downtown Greensboro.
