Featured on CBC’s 2016 list of hot Canadian classical musicians under 30, Rolston String Quartet’s performances have taken them throughout the U.S., Canada, Europe, and Israel with highlights in venues such as the Smithsonian, Kennedy Centre for the Performing Arts and Austria’s Esterhazy Palace. Their program includes Haydn’s “Sunrise” quartet, with its dawn invoking themes, Murray Schafer’s “Waves;” an ocean soundscape in music, and Beethoven’s ambitious “Razumovsky” Quartet. Rolston String Quartet performs “with a maturity and cohesion rivaling the best string quartets in the world” (Musical Toronto), making this a must-see concert!

Rolston String Quartet is endorsed by Jargar Strings of Denmark.

“…performing at a level difficult to imagine in generations past.”Toronto Star

What are Relaxed Performances?

 

Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.

These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.

 

Relaxed Performances offered during the 2021 Charlottetown Festival:
