An afternoon of music and community featuring the Silflay String Quartet performing musical gems by Jewish composers Achron and Korngold. The show will run for 45 minutes followed by a half hour meet the musicians with coffee and snacks.

Based in Ottawa, members of the The Silflay String Quartet include National Arts Centre Orchestra musicians Leah Roseman, Mark Friedman, Sonya Probst, and Thaddeus Morden.  "Silflay" is a word coined by the author Richard Adams, and is used in his book Watership Down as part of the language the rabbits use. During silflay the rabbits browse above ground for tasty food; it is a time of ease and freedom. The Silflay String Quartet seeks to discover music that is outside the regular repertoire, and also to enjoy outstanding and more familiar works. The quartet performs at the Mackay Chamber Music Series, has played at Café Classico at the Shenkman Centre and participates in an interactive educational concert for children entitled “Simon Says Silflay”.
