We have a little Luxmas bonbon to share with you!
Here is Lux performing “Once in Royal David’s City,” from David Evan Thomas’s “Star Bright: Five Carols for String Quartet.” Included in this video are a few words from the composer himself!
Joining us for this video performance is cellist Charles Asch. We enjoyed preparing this movement with him - thank you, Charles. Eric Graf is taking a leave of absence from the quartet to focus on teaching for the remainder of the season. We will miss you, Eric!
