The Lafayette is the only all-female ensemble in the world to comprise the four original members – a distinct rarity, regardless of gender and regardless of profession. Members of the quartet are Ann Elliott-Goldschmid, Joanna Hood, Pamela Highbaugh Aloni and Sharon Stanis.
Since 1986, the members of the Lafayette String Quartet have divided their time between entertaining audiences all over North America and Europe and teaching some of Canada’s finest young string players. Their residency at the University of Victoria is rich in local performances and community involvement. Their concerts in Canada and abroad are hailed as “Passionate, riveting, and with flawless ensemble.”
