THE Eberle String Quartet's new season has been announced, with its first concert on Sunday featuring the chorister George White, at St Laurence’s Church in Downton.

White, who was a chorister in Salisbury Cathedral, went on to study the viola at the Royal Academy of Music with Garfield Jackson of the Endellion Quartet and won the Harold Craxton prize.

A passionate chamber player, he has received coaching from members of the Chilingirian, Wihan and London Haydn string quartets among others.

Having played in one of the Eberle Plus concerts in 2012 he is looking forward to joining the quartet again, and will be playing Brahms G major Quintet, a wonderfully passionate, romantic and dramatic work.

Now in its 22nd year of performing together and still with the original four players, the Eberle Quartet has given recitals in many parts of Britain and abroad in Tuscany, Holland and France, as well as braving the seas on Classical Music Cruises. It is also regularly involved in projects ranging from educational workshops to playing to patients in wards at Salisbury District Hospital.

The quartet has recorded to critical acclaim on the Naim label, its Samuel Barber, Philip Gates and Frank Bridge disc winning CD of the month in Classic CD Magazine.

The 2014/15 series of concerts in the Salisbury area is once more entitled Eberle 'Plus' when a guest player joins the quartet in order to vary the programmes.

The Sunday concert, which will also feature Debussy’s String Quartet in G minor, starts at 3pm.

Tickets available on the door for £14, students £5, under 18s free, and there will be post concert tea and cakes.
