The Quartet is comprised of Kirstin Carlson, Deb Haarsager, Peggy Hammerling and Erika Tomten. They regularly perform throughout the region, playing everything from classical to jazz, pop and Celtic music. This noontime concert will feature holiday tunes.
This concert is part of the ArtWORKS musical performances organized by The Arts Partnership at Hector Airport. The musical groups are positioned by the cafe on the 2nd floor of the Airport – and nontravelers are certainly welcome to come enjoy the music and perhaps lunch or a cup of coffee at the cafe.
