Posted: September 11, 2019

On Friday night Thomas Aquinas College, New England, hosted the inaugural concert of this year’s St. Vincent de Paul Lecture and Concert Series. Held in Olivia Music Hall, the concert featured the Madison String Quartet, which has played at Carnegie Hall  and in other premier venues world-over for 20 years. The New Jersey-based ensemble performed Mozart’s Quartet in G Major, K. 156; Vivaldi’s “Winter” from The Four Seasons; and Haydn’s Quartet Op. 20, #4. It then blessed the audience with an encore, Fuga con Pajarillo, an exciting piece by the South American Composer Aldemaro Romero.

After the concert students and members of the teaching faculty gathered in Gould Hall for refreshments and Trivial Pursuit, continuing a longstanding tradition  from the California campus. Despite a furious, late-game comeback  on the part of the tutors, the students emerged victorious.
