(Aug. 26, 2005)--The UTSA Department of Music presents the Hemisphere Quartet in a chamber music concert at 7:30 p.m., Monday, Aug. 29 in the UTSA Recital Hall, 1604 Campus. Admission is $5 and free to students with a UTSACard.

The Hemisphere Quartet features Rita Linard, flute; David Herbert, oboe; Judith VanderWeg, cello; and Christine Debus, piano.

The quartet recently returned from a five-concert engagement with the Ensemble Roxane in the Bergerac region in southwest France.

Their programs included music from the 17th century baroque period to the present featuring the world premiere of "Les Quatre Coins" by UTSA composer James Scott Balentine.

"Les Quatre Coins" was commissioned for the Hemisphere Quartet's tour of France with each of the four movements dedicated to one of the musicians. Quartet members are current or former UTSA faculty members.
