The ACT Maple Ridge is now selling tickets for the Viano Quartet, as part of its Sunday Chamber Music Series.

Praised for their “virtuosity, visceral expression, and rare unity of intention” by the Boston Globe, the Viano Quartet are one of the most sought-after performing young ensembles today, and are currently in-residence at the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center Bowers Program from 2024-2027.

They will perform in Maple Ridge on April 28 at 3 p.m.

Since winning first prize at the 2019 Banff International String Quartet Competition, they have traveled to nearly every major city across the globe, playing for audiences in New York, London, Berlin, Vancouver, Paris, Beijing, Toronto, Lucerne, and Los Angeles.

Complementing their program of Prodigies Haydn and Smetana, they perform an energetic new piece by Canadian composer Kevin Lau, the youngest person to be appointed affiliate composer of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, in 2012.

Cellist Tate Zawadiuk and violinist Lucy Wang are native British Columbians, returning ‘home’ in this exciting conclusion to the series, with Hao Zhou on violin and Aiden Kane on viola.

For newcomers and aficionados alike, the Sunday Chamber Music Series presents casual afternoons of classical masterworks for small ensembles performed by some of the finest classical musicians in Canada and beyond.

Curated by violinist David Gillham, the series celebrated young genius, culminating with one of the most exciting young string quartets on the world stage today.

The 90-minute show has preferred seating for $27 plus fees, and tickets are available at
