The LaCamafour String Quartet will perform Oct. 2 at the Zen Words Zen Centre.

Now in its fourth season, the LaCafamore String Quartet will perform Oct. 2 at the Zen Words Zen Centre.

The program will include Beethoven’s String Quartet Op. 18 No. 6, Steve Reich’s Different Trains, Debussy’s String Quartet in G Minor and Puccini’s Crisantemi, performed by two violinists (one from the Crescent Valley, the other from Virginia), a violist from Rossland and cellist Jeff Faragher of Nelson.

“It’s a really solid program,” said Faragher. “We’re having a great time rehearsing.”

The Beethoven piece, he said, is particularly noteworthy.

“His earlier works are more simple and dainty but this one’s got a lot of meat. … In its time, it was ‘out there’ as a string quartet.”

Different Trains, he said, is one that people will talk about after the show — the multimedia performance includes memories by Second World War survivors.

“When they’re listening, they feel like they’re part of the experience, not just watching it,” said Faragher.

The Nelson-based group is bringing its magnificent program to the East Kootenays in order to support and promote musical exchange between the communities of the Kootenays.

“We really try and just get people jazzed and connect communities in the area,” said Faragher. “That feeds me every day.”

Tickets for the 2 p.m. concert are $20 for adults, $15 for students (18 and under) and $50 for families, and are available at the door or at Black Bear Books.
