“The Parkers” are beloved regular performers at St. John’s College and will return on October 13. They won a Grammy for their recording of the string quartets of Gyorgy Ligeti, and this year they will finally perform one of his quartets at St. John’s. They are currently artists in residence at Harvard University. In addition to the Ligeti, the program will include late quartets of Mozart (K. 589) and Bartok (No. 6).
