Fetter Chamber Music Concert #3
Start Date: 12/2/2017Start Time: 8:00 PM
End Date: 12/2/2017End Time: 10:00 PM
Event Description:

Student musicians from the Elizabeth Pollard Fetter program perform three chamber music concerts.  The Swarthmore College Lab Orchestra will perform with the Jasper String Quartet.

The Elizabeth Pollard Fetter Chamber Music Program has been an integral part of the Swarthmore College performance program for four decades. It began in 1975 as the "Pollard Scholarship Funds," with an initial contribution from Elizabeth Pollard Fetter '25 in memory of her mother, Emilie Garrett Pollard '93. With the passing of Elizabeth Pollard Fetter in 1977, husband Frank Whitson Fetter '20 stepped forward to endow the Elizabeth Pollard Fetter String Quartet Scholarships at Swarthmore College. Dozens of student musicians were subsequently supported in their desire to explore the string quartet repertoire.

In 2001, the program was renamed the Elizabeth Pollard Fetter Chamber Music Program and was expanded to support the coaching of multiple chamber music groups. Funding continues to be enhanced by successive generations of the Fetter family, some of whom are Swarthmore alumni. Swarthmore College, students and faculty past and present, and the community at large, has been enriched by the musical communication made possible through the generosity of the Fetter family.
