With their newly released recording of Mendelssohn quartets, the Parker Quartet returns to St. John’s College.

Established in 1977, Folger Consort is the early music ensemble-in-residence at the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, DC. The ensemble will perform some of the Bard’s best known songs, including “O Mistresse Mine,” sung by the Feste in Twelfth Night, and an old ballad, “The Willow Song,” adapted by Shakespeare for Desdemona in Othello.
