At the Break of Dawn – Odyssey String Quartet
Dedicated to the simple enjoyment of performing music together, and of sharing that music with live audiences, Odyssey String Quartet has developed an extensive and varied repertoire since its founding in 2002. Grounded in string quartet classics with occasional forays into such styles as tango and swing, Odyssey’s performances have created a loyal following in Victoria, British Columbia.
Odyssey members Christi Meyers, Tori Gould, Kay Cochran, and Alasdair Money maintain active professional careers, playing in the Victoria Symphony, as well as performing chamber music and teaching. OSQ members’ far-ranging interests bring a wealth of musical perspective to the quartet’s concerts. Christi and Kay have taught violin, viola and chamber music regularly at the University of Victoria since 2002; Tori has frequently mentored at the Brott Festival. Kay has regularly performed new music and early music with Continuum Consort. Alasdair performs as a member of the Emily Carr String Quartet, and Christi is a founding member of Victoria Baroque.
In non-pandemic years, in July and August Odyssey can be heard in concert regularly on Sunday evenings at the Butchart Gardens.
