    1st Prize winner and Audience Prize winner at the Trondheim (Norway) International Chamber Music Competition in 2017, the Maxwell Quartet has been hailed for "great communication" by The Strad Magazine and as “brilliantly fresh, unexpected and exhilarating” by The Scottish Herald. The Glasgow-based Maxwell Quartet is now firmly regarded as one of Britain's finest string quartets, with performances set apart by the tribute they pay to their Scottish folk music heritage.

WE'RE BACK!
LET THE MUSIC PLAY

After a far-too-long hiatus, we are delighted to announce that we will return to The Richards Center for the Arts in January for our 2022 season. We are extremely excited to be returning to the concert stage and, as always, we will be bringing you outstanding artists offering a variety of types of programs.  We regret that we have not been able to announce the season until now, but various booking matters with both  our artists and the venue made that impossible.

The theme for our season is “Back by Popular Demand.”  Those performers who have dazzled our audiences in the past include The Maxwell Quartet, a string group of Scottish lads playing classical and folk music; Andy Hackbarth, classical guitarist, who drew our largest audience in at least the past decade; and Ilya Yakushev, virtuoso pianist, who received a standing ovation at intermission at his last concert with us.  This time, he will be joined by cellist Thomas Mesa, who has appeared as a soloist with major orchestras in the United States including the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Cleveland Orchestra.

Appearing with us for the first time is the Sords, Walz, Durkovic Trio.  Featuring works by Beethoven, Dvorak and others, the group includes violinist Andrew Sords, pianist Timothy Durkovic and cellist John Walz, who will perform classical favorites honoring the romantic era.

Tickets will be mailed shortly after orders are received or designated for Will Call as directed.

In a previous communication, we indicated that it was our intention to reschedule in 2022 a performance by Trio Confero, whose original performance was to have been held in 2020 but was canceled because of the pandemic.  It is now not possible for us to do that because of visa limitations placed on the performers.

As you might imagine, it has not been easy for us to maintain our operation during the past year.  Our earned income (i.e., ticket sales) has been non-existent and, while our expenses have been lower than usual, they have not been non-existent!  In order to “Keep the Music Playing,” we must rely on the generosity of our subscribers and other donors.  Thus, we would urge you to click this “Donate” link to make as generous a contribution as you are comfortable doing.  Contributions may also be mailed to us at:  PS Concerts, P.O. Box 1502, Palm Springs, CA  92263 or call our HOTLINE at 760-770-0774.  With year-end tax planning occurring presently, now is the perfect time to remember PS Concerts!

Meanwhile, our first concert will be January 19.  We look forward to seeing you there.
