The Rose Quintet presents Elvis Costello's The Juliet Letters

The rarely performed 1993 voice & string quartet song cycle

In 1993, renowned singer-songwriter Elvis Costello partnered with The Brodsky Quartet to create a unique song cycle culminating in the album The Juliet Letters.  Each song takes the form of a letter and in each letter, Costello weaves a rich tapestry of characters and compelling stories. In the spirit of other classical and pop-fusing masterpieces, Costello and The Brodsky Quartet bring seemingly disparate voices together to present something beautiful, unique, and refreshingly new.

The Rose Quintet are:
Joseph Boucher - voice
Dean Stein - violin (Portland String Quartet)
Caroline Cornish - violin (Midcoast Symphony, former co-host of WCSH6's 207)
Julia Adams - viola (Portland String Quartet)
Kevin Oates - cello (director, Maine Youth Rock Orchestra)
