An internationally performing group of musicians, the Afiara String Quartet, will perform for local schools this week, exposing hundreds of students to chamber music.

This tour will be the quartet’s second visit to the Tahoe Truckee region, and this time they are back by popular demand.

“Their reception was fantastic,” said Domenic Favero, chairman of the festival’s educational outreach program committee, about the group’s visit to Alder Creek Middle School last year. “It was just like rock stars appeared. This roar went up, clapping.”

The Lake Tahoe Music Festival’s educational outreach program is sponsoring the Canadian musicians’ four-day visit to elementary schools in Tahoe City, Kings Beach, Incline Village and Truckee, as well as a stop at the senior center and a public performance Friday evening at the Squaw Valley Chapel.
