Ethel, a string quartet that arises from the context of our time, will perform at 8 p.m. Feb. 6 as part of the F. Ludwig Diehn Concert Series at Old Dominion University. This program will include works by late 20th century composers Marcelo Zarvos, Timo Alikotila, Lennie Tristano, John. King, and Pamela Z. The Performance will be in Chandler Recital Hall of the Diehn Fine and Performing Arts Center. Tickets may be purchased in advance or at the door.

Hailed by the New York Times as "extraordinarily skilled passionate musicians," Ethel has stretched itself far beyond the limits of convention, genre and style. Each member's unique experiences in the music world brings an exciting, beautiful and rare combination of tastes and talents to each performance. The quartet has quickly established a reputation as a powerful voice in New York City's ever-evolving music scene. Members have performed with such acclaimed artists as Reba McEntire, the New York Chamber Symphony, and Yo-Yo Ma.

The F. Ludwig Diehn Concert Series is supported by a grant from the Diehn Fund of the Norfolk Foundation. Tickets for the Feb. 6 performance are $15 for general admission; $10 for Old Dominion faculty and staff, senior citizens and non-ODU students; and $7 ODU students with valid ID. Tickets may be purchased at the Arts and Letters Box Office in the atrium of the Diehn Center, located on the corner of 49th Street and Elkhorn Avenue, or by calling 683-5305.
