KAMLOOPS - The Black Dog String Quartet will perform the first in the New Gold Chamber Music Series on Oct. 17 at 7:30 p.m. in the TRU Alumni Theatre.

They will perform two iconic string quartet works, as well as a world premiere by B.C. composer Jason Nett and an exciting arrangement of Piazzolla’s famous Libertango.

The Black Dog String Quartet is one of Vancouver’s hottest quartets. Formed in 2007, this talented quartet is made up of Elyse Jacobson, Molly MacKinnon, John Kastelic and Doug Gorkoff. All four musicians are members of the Kamloops Symphony.

Black Dog String Quartet has appeared on recordings with artists such as 54-40, Marianas Trench and Bleeding Through. They are considered one of Vancouver’s most unique and versatile ensembles, performing for various public and private events, including classical chamber concerts and weddings, as well as on film and television scores. Their solid classical background, high skill level, and collective open-mindedness set them apart.

They will perform a world premiere of Jason Nett’s T.E.D. (Thoughts Equal Dreams) at this concert. Nett is a composer, producer and guitarist from New Westminster, B.C. He is known for fusing classical styles with rock and jazz.
