Introducing the Madoc Quartet, named by QSCM Artistic Director Sebastian Sallans to honour the community which raised him.
QSCM is about sharing the amazing world of classical music with the people I grew up with; people who taught me that everybody loves beautiful music. My greatest influences as a musician are Bill Sallans (my grandfather), Russian violinist Vadim Repin, Johann Sebastian Bach, and Johnny Cash. I want to play classical music for you the way Johnny Cash played Folsom Prison Blues, from the heart, and in a way that means something to people. I am excited to be coming home to share the beautiful music of string quartet with you all.
~ Sebastian Sallans

QSCM’s All Terrain Tour is sponsored by local donors
In keeping with directives from Public Health Officials, QSCM respects the need for isolation. The ALL TERRAIN TOUR is nine weeks away. At this time we are not cancelling the May 22, 23, and 24 dates. If COVID-19 Isolation Protocols are still in place as we get closer, the performances will be postponed. All concert tickets will be honoured for the next QSCM performance, whenever it is held.
QSCM encourages our donors to continue to support this project. When the dust clears, our musicians will be ready, and we will be hungry to listen. Meanwhile, check out the QSCM Blog for ongoing dialogue about classical music and the musicians that make it in these challenging circumstances.
