A Converse Trio performance of "Quartet for the End of Time" has been rescheduled for Thursday, March 11th at 7:30 pm in Fullerton Auditorium.

"Quartet for the End of Time" premiered on January 15, 1941 in frigid Barrack 27 of the World War II Nazi prison camp Stalag VIII-A. Olivier Messiaen, who wrote the score, was joined by three of his fellow prisoners in the large garrison-which had been converted to serve as a theater-to perform the piece as hundreds of other prisoners and their Nazi guards looked on.

The Converse Trio will perform the 50-minute piece with various elements of multi-media. Admission is free and open to the public.
