Elegant escape: Ellington, Gershwin & Ravel

Inundate yourself in the enchanted sounds of a string quartet. It is a delicious antidote for tension and a relief from the hurly-burly of the holiday season.

The Premier Quartet, principal players with the Shreveport Symphony Orchestra, perform Thursday, January 6, at 7:30 at Hurley Music Building , Centenary College campus. Parking is easy. The concert hall is gorgeous. The lighting is warm, the seats comfy, the acoustics clear and balanced.

Onstage will be violinists Kermit Poling and Elizabeth O 'Bannon, violist Borys Smolaga and Cellist Ruth Drummond.

Tickets for the Ellington, Gershwin, Ravel and Daugherty program are $15. Students are $5.
