WHAT: Valley Classical Concerts Present the Attacca Quartet 
WHERE: Sweeney Concert Hall, Sage Hall at Smith College, 144 Green Street Northampton, MA
WHEN: Sunday, May 6, 2018, 3 p.m.
A standard-bearer of an amazing generation of American quartets makes its VCC debut. Works by Pulitzer-winner Caroline Shaw, Mendelssohn (Op. 12), and Beethoven (the sublime Op. 132). “…very close to epitomizing the string quartet ideal.”
(Washington Post)

Gain insight into the music and the performances by attending the lively Concert Conversations with the musicians and VCC Artistic Director John Montanari, in Sweeney Concert Hall, (handicap accessible), at no additional charge, one hour in advance of each concert.
