Emerson plays VCU in May

The Emerson String Quartet will perform in Virginia Commonwealth University’s Rennolds Chamber Concerts series on May 5 in place of violinist Leila Josefowicz, who canceled her VCU date for “personal reasons.”

The Emerson, long rated among the leading U.S. chamber ensembles, last performed in Richmond in 1996. The program for its Rennolds concert, 8 p.m. May 5 in VCU’s Singleton Arts Center, has not been announced.

Tickets already issued for Josefowicz will be honored for the Emerson date. Single tickets are $32.
