Tonight the Quartet performed a Mozart themed set list at Whirlow’s Tossed and Grilled, located on Pacific Avenue in Stockton California. They not only performed the 1st and 3rd movements of Mozart’s famous “Dissonance” Quartet, but also accompanied Darren Chan on Mozart’s Violin Concerto no. 5 in A Major. Afterwards, Darren joined the Quartet for an exciting read through of Mozart’s Quintet in C Minor.
