If you are new to the Crimson String Quartet, I am Alvin Tran, the violist of the group. I am writing a quick post before getting back to my practicing in preparation for the CSQ’s Rural Residency Tour 2013 in Southern Saskatchewan. I leave Saturday morning for a month of rehearsals and concerts. I am especially looking forward to working with three new guest musicians, as well as performing with two long-time friends. We have a long month ahead with some exciting repertoire to share with communities around Southern Saskatchewan.
After many months of booking, grant proposals, repertoire decisions, and countless Skype meetings (we do all live in different parts of North America!), the beginning of the tour is in sight. We hope to keep everyone up to date via this blog and we always appreciate comments!
The next time you hear from me, I’ll be in Saskatchewan!
