The past few weeks, UA Presents at the University of Arizona has presented a "Classical Music Night" at the Crowder Hall at the School of Music on Thursday at 7:30 p.m.

This week is no different. This week will feature 'A Quartet for the End of Time." The backstory of how this musical program was composed is made for the movies.

written while the composer was imprisoned in an internment camp. Premiered with the camp’s German officers seated in the first row, the quartet’s unusual instrumentation resulted from the available musicians among Messiaen’s fellow prisoners.

Rarely heard in live performance, this stunning work will be performed by some of chamber music’s most respected artists.

Tickets are available for purchase online or at the box office.

The event also has a collaborative presentation at the UA Student union Bookstore, located at 1209 E. University Blvd., on March 8, 2014. Info below.
