Listen to Mac Talla Quartet in Concert May 20th!

»Posted on May 10, 2018

May 20th at 2:30 at Grace-Westminster Church in Saskatoon, Mac Talla will be putting on a show. We love to do shows like this, because it gives us a chance to play the music we truly love. My favourites on our programme will be the 2nd movement of Beethoven quartet that always yanks my heartstrings, our arrangement of “The Rains of Castamere” from Game of Thrones, and of course the three Playford dance pieces I’ve been telling you about for months. I have heard a few concerts at Grace-Westminster before, and I’m also looking forward to playing with the beautiful acoustics. This will be a memorable event! 505 10th Street East, Saskatoon. For more on this event, send me an email, or visit our Facebook page. Click...
