Guarneri String Quartet Concert Is Rescheduled For April 10 In Hancher

An east-coast blizzard prevented the Guarneri String Quartet from traveling to their concert that was scheduled for Feb. 15 at the University of Iowa. But the concert has now been rescheduled for 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 10, in Hancher Auditorium.

Tickets issued for the Feb. 15 event will be honored that evening. No exchange of tickets is required, even though the April 10 concert will take place in Hancher rather than in Clapp Recital Hall, which was to have been the Feb. 15 venue.

The Guarneri String Quartet concert is supported by John and Sue Strauss through the University of Iowa Foundation.

With the rescheduling, tickets are now once again on sale. Tickets are $38; UI student $15; senior citizen $34.20; youth $26.60. Discounted concert tickets are available as part of volume purchases: A simultaneous purchase of five events or more qualifies for a 15-percent discount.

Hancher Auditorium box office business hours are 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. weekdays and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays. From the local calling area, dial 319-335-1160. Long distance is toll-free, 1-800-HANCHER.
