The Muir String Quartet will make a rare winter appearance in Bozeman, performing at 7:30 p.m. both Thursday, Jan. 12, and Saturday, Jan. 14, in Montana State University's Reynolds Recital Hall.

Muir cellist Michael Reynolds is a Bozeman native as well as the son of the late Creech Reynolds, the former MSU music professor for whom the MSU Reynolds Recital Hall is named.

In its 33rd season, the Muir Quartet is often regarded as one of America's leading string quartets. In residence at Boston University, the quartet is the resident chamber ensemble at the Deer Valley Festival, where they run the Emerging Quartets and Composers residency with composer Joan Tower. They also perform benefit work for the Classics for Kids Foundation, which offers matching grants in support of strings programs nationwide. Their latest endeavor is performing as part of the newly formed Montana Chamber Music Society, the first statewide chamber music society in America.

Tickets for the Muir performances are $25 and are sold at Cactus Records and ERA Landmark Realty in Bozeman.
