19th Annual Summer Concert by Members of the Quartet Club of Cambridge. All Welcome. Free Admission. Retiring Collection.

Quartet Club was created to give young people and adults the experience of playing string quartets and to receive coaching to develop their playing and musicianship. An important part of the ethos of Quartet Club is to encourage the skills of listening to what each other is doing and to work as a team, skills that are vital in chamber music but which also have a wider application.
