What does "Final concert" actually mean?

Time to correct the rampant misunderstanding of the phrase "final concert". This does not mean that we are all quitting our instruments never to return to them or that the quartet will never play again. Quite the contrary, we are all planning to continue our musical pursuits --just less formally.

Putting these types of concerts together is a ton of work. With David starting his second semester, Eric and Justin working their tales off and me headed in every which direction, this seemed like the best time to have one last major performance together.

So this simply means that we will no longer be preforming formal concerts, like the one tomorrow, again. We will still be actively playing as a group for different events like weddings and church.

Thank you all so much for your care and concern. We look forward to seeing many of you tomorrow.

Working their tales off? Impressive, I didn't know they were story-tellers.

That was rather good timing on my part to catch your last officially formalized concert - I'm really looking forward to it, by the way.....

Your concert was a tale of success and the fruits of love and perseverance. Congrats.

People keep asking me when y'all are going to come to San Diego - they want to hear you play. I don't suppose you have any living-room concert tours planned for us poor Quartet deprived Californians, eh?
