The 25th season of Music at Noon: The Logan Series at Penn State Erie, The Behrend College, opens with The Cavani Quartet, the quartet-in-residence at the Cleveland Institute of Music, on Tuesday, Sept. 16.

The Cavani Quartet’s Logan Series performance takes place at noon in the McGarvey Commons of the Reed Union Building. Admission is free, and reserved parking for audience members will be available in the Reed lot.

The quartet is the only ensemble to be selected twice, in both 2005 and 2011, as the recipient of the Guarneri String Quartet Award for Artistic Excellence from Chamber Music America.

Also appearing in Music at Noon: The Logan Series this year will be East of the River on Monday, Oct. 6; Sonic Escape on Wednesday, Nov. 12; Harlem Quartet on Wednesday, Jan. 21; Baltimore Consort on Monday, Feb. 16; and Boston Brass on Tuesday, April 7.

Music at Noon: The Logan Series receives state arts funding support through a grant from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency. Additional support for this program is provided in part from an Erie Arts & Culture Project Grant, made possible by community contributions to the Combined Arts & Cultural Campaign and the Erie Arts Endowment.
