CURTIS — Erickson Center for the Arts in Curtis presents a chamber music concert at 7 p.m. Monday.
The True North Quartet, a string quartet group from the Ann Arbor area, will be playing a program entitled “Razzle-Dazzle.” Violinists Paul Lundin, violist Joseph Deller and cellist Daniel Thomas return for their ninth year playing together for Erickson Center audiences. Violinist David Lamse joins them this year as their newest member. The “dazzling” mezzo-soprano and oboist Kaycee Ware Thomas will join the group this summer to show off her diverse musical talent and skill.
