Tatiana Copeland, the grand niece of Sergei Rachmaninoff, has long been a generous patron of the arts in the Delaware Valley. She has been an ardent supporter of the Delaware Symphony Orchestra, having served as a board member and as past president of the board. The quartet chose its name to honor Mrs. Copeland and to thank her for her generous and unwavering support of the Delaware Symphony. The quartet is especially grateful to Tatiana Copeland for her sponsorship of the four concerts at the Church of the Holy City, now in its fourth season of free concerts.
In 2007, the CSQ approached Tatiana Copeland and asked for her sponsorship of the Church of the Holy City concerts. These free concerts allow the quartet to offer the gift of music, the beautiful repertoire for the string quartet, and an introduction to the glorious art form that is classical music, to their audience. As seasoned musicians with the Delaware Symphony Orchestra, the quartet hopes to win new fans for classical music, for the Delaware Symphony, and for the Copeland String Quartet! At the close of its second season in June of 2009, the Church of the Holy City was filled to capacity for the final two concerts. During the 2009 - 2010 concert year, the pews were filled with happy fans of CSQ.
With Mrs. Copeland's ongoing support for the 2010 - 2011 season, the quartet will continue to fill the Church of the Holy City with beautiful music to the delight of their enthusiastic audience. Join us!
