The Board of Directors of the Cascade Head Music Festival is pleased to announce a Spring concert event featuring the Debussy String Quartet

Personally, this is one of my very favorite quartets. I'm very excited to have them perform in Lincoln City! What a treat it will be to hear this French quartet playing the two most famous quartets by French composers; Debussy & Ravel.

This world-renowned French string quartet, will present a concert of French chamber music at the Lincoln City Cultural Center. This performance is the Debussy Quartet’s premiere concert in Oregon and their only stop in Oregon during their 2011 North American tour. The Debussy Quartet’s concert program, ‘Land of Passion,’ includes string quartets by Debussy, Ravel, as well as Lekeu. Tickets cost $25 for reserved seating, $20 for general admission.

I hope to see you at either of these concerts!
