Borealis String Quartet to Return to Santa Barbara Museum of Art

The Borealis String Quartet

The Santa Barbara Museum of Art will host a performance by Borealis String Quartet at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 31, 2016, in the Mary Craig Auditorium.

Formed in 2000, the Vancouver-based quartet quickly established a reputation as one of the most dynamic and exciting world-class ensembles of its generation, and their performances, including concerts at the Met as well as their 2011 performance at SBMA, became instant sell-outs.

Their upcoming performance includes Beethoven’s Quartet No.4 in C minor, Op.18 No.4, Shostakovich’s Quartet No.9 in E-flat Major, Op.117 and String Quartet No.3 by Imant Raminsh.

The last piece was written for the Borealis String Quartet and recently had its world premiere at Vernon’s Performing Arts Centre in Canada to great acclaim.

One of the most dynamic and exciting world-class ensembles of its generation, the Borealis String Quartet has received international, critical acclaim as an ensemble praised for its fiery performances, passionate style and refined musical interpretation.

The cost of the performance is $18 for SBMA members and $22 for non-members. Tickets can be purchased at the Museum Visitor Services desks or online at

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
