Detroit Symphony Orchestra String Quartet at Baldwin Public Library. This Wednesday October 2nd at 7pm.

The Baldwin Public Library and the Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO) will present an evening of music at the Library on Wednesday, October 2 at 7 p.m. The event features a performance by a string quartet comprised of DSO musicians.

The quartet consists of First Violinist Laurie Goldman and Assistant Concert Master Hai Xin Wu, both on violin, Paul Wingert on cello, and Hang Su on viola. Their concert will feature String Quartet #2 by Alexander Zemlinsky and Lullaby by George Gershwin.

“The Library is proud to offer cultural programming of all kinds, but we are particularly happy to welcome members of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra to perform in our community,” said Library Director Doug Koschik.

This performance is funded through the support of the Jane Cameron Endowment Fund and will be offered free of charge to the public. The concert will take place in the Rotary Room, in the lower level of the Library.

To put you in the mood we have included this You Tube Clip of the Paray String Quartet playing Beethoven Opus 18 no.4  at  Masta (Michigan Chapter of American String Teachers Association).

Amazing the power and range of just  four instruments.

The Baldwin Public Library can be reached at 248-647-1700 or The Library is located at 300 West Merrill Street in downtown Birmingham.
