Prince Rupert residents will be treated to the Quartom Vocal Quartet at the Lester Centre of the Arts on Oct. 26.

The quartet, who all hail from Quebec, are known to blend classical music with popular tunes.

“At times serious, at times playful, these four highly skilled voice musicians offer singing of the highest quality that will appeal to all audiences,” said general manager Crystal Lorette.

The band has two albums to its credit, one a Christmas album and the other a gospel CD.

The quartet is a non-profit organization that is funded by the Council of Arts and Letters of Quebec and Canada Council for the Arts for its development and touring activities.

The men will be on stage at 7:30 p.m. on Oct. 26, but the evening begins at 7 p.m. with a wine and cheese reception. The event is part of the Volunteer Appreciation Evening put on by the Lester Centre.
