The Cascade Quartet (l-r): Megan Karls, Mary Papoulis, Maria Ritzenthaler and Thaddeus Suits.

According to Glasgow's Allison Nichols, the Cascade Quartet is making a scheduled stop at Glasgow High School Oct. 31, with a full concert performance at GHS auditorium. The group will also be touring area schools during the week. The performances are presented by Northeastern Arts Network Music Series. The concert in Glasgow starts at 7 p.m.

The quartet is the resident string quartet of the Great Falls Symphony, and has been performing and teaching with various combinations of players in the Northwest for decades. Their repertoire spans from Mozart to heavy metal and their performances are often praised for their high quality and consistent musicality. The quartet has performed with renowned artists Philip Aaberg, the Ying Quartet, and Yo Yo Ma, among others. Typically, the quartet not only performs, but also educates, presenting interactive and educational school programs that have drawn regular return engagements.

The current ensemble consists of Mary Papoulis on violin, Megan Karls (violin), Maria Ritzenthaler (viola), and Thaddeus Suits on cello.
