We have supported the acclaimed Jubilee Quartet for several years now, with Tereza Privratska and Julia Loucks both playing on instruments acquired through Nigel Brown and the Stradivari Trust. You might be lucky enough to catch their latest coffee concert, part of the CAVATINA 25 scheme, with a limited number of free tickets for under 26-year olds, at Wigmore Hall on Sunday 15 May 2022.
Other tickets are £16. The programme features Schubert’s String Quartet in G D887 and will last for approximately one hour, without an interval.
