On February 6th and 7th, we (LAGQ) gave the world-premiere performances of  Sergio Assad's latest work, "Interchange" for guitar quartet and orchestra, along with the San Antonio Symphony under the direction of Gregory Vajda. The orchestra was stellar and the performances went extremely well. We're very pleased about that, to say the least. It took a lot of work to get the piece together; and the piece, in fact, was years in the making itself, having first approached Sergio about it years earlier.

Tonight we play the first of 3 performances of the concerto with the Rochester Philharmonic, Christopher Seamens conducting. To see if the concerto is coming to your neck of the woods, visit our website:
