The Lark Quartet is one of the few string quartets comprised entirely of women. It's also one of the even rarer quartets to have won almost all the prestigious competitions a chamber music ensemble can enter: the Naumburg Award, first prize in St. Petersburg's Shostakovich International String Quartet Competition, and top prizes in the London International Competition, Australia's Melbourne International Competition and Canada's Banff Competition. The Lark will perform Friday at 8 p.m. at the Evergreen Carriage House (4545 N. Charles St.). Admission to the concert is $5 and includes a reception after the performance. Call (410) 516-0341 for further information.
