The award-win­ning Ruisi String Quar­tet will be ap­pear­ing later this month as part of the Music in Dol­lar sea­son of con­certs.

They will per­form in the Gib­son Hall, Dol­lar Academy on Satur­day, Fe­bru­ary 25 from 7.30pm.

Music in Dol­lar is keen to en­cour­age fam­i­lies to come to their con­certs so en­try is com­pletely free for any­one un­der 18 or in full-time ed­u­ca­tion.

The Ruisi String Quar­tet per­forms reg­u­larly through­out the UK and Europe, in­clud­ing venues such as Lon­don’s Wigmore Hall. They are per­form­ing in Dol­lar as part of their tour sup­ported by the Tun­nell Trust, which helps young mu­si­cians to bring their music to the more ru­ral parts of Scot­land.

The con­cert will in­clude works by Haydn, Mozart and Ravel, and will last around two hours, with wine and soft drinks served dur­ing the in­ter­val.

Ju­lian Reeves from Dol­lar Music So­ci­ety said:“We’re de­lighted to wel­come the amaz­ing Ruisi String Quar­tet to Dol­lar as part of the Music in Dol­lar Sea­son. Th­ese play­ers have quickly es­tab­lished them­selves as one of the lead­ing British quar­tets of their gen­er­a­tion.

“We’re very grate­ful for the sup­port we have re­ceived from En­ter­prise Music Scot­land and our con­cert spon­sor, Robert­son Fine Arts. To­gether they make it pos­si­ble for us to con­tinue to bring first-class mu­si­cians, right in the heart of our com­mu­nity – at a frac­tion of the cost it would usu­ally be.”

Every­one is wel­come, with tick­ets avail­able on the door for just £10.
