Combined, these string quartets create an ensemble of perfect harmony. The Saguenay Quartet (QC) — violinists Marie Bégin and Nathalie Camus, violist Luc Beauchemin, and cellist David Ellis — have developed a prestigious reputation for excellence. The Lafayette String Quartet (BC) — violinists Ann Elliott-Goldschmid and Sharon Stanis, violist Joanna Hood, and cellist Pamela Highbaugh Aloni — are hailed as passionate and riveting, a flawless ensemble.
