Do not miss your chance to be there when the Emerson String Quartet takes the stage at Jordan Hall for their final concert with Celebrity Series, the last of 27 appearances, a tenure marked by stirring performances, brilliant collaborations, and memorable moments.

The program will be drawn from their Grammy Award-winning recordings of quartets by composers Bartók, Shostakovich, and Beethoven. The poignant Lyric for Strings by George Walker sets the tone as we bid the beloved Quartet a fond farewell.
