Want to experience world-class classical chamber music in an informal setting? For free? Here's your chance.

The public is invited to a Center for the Performing Arts Classical Coffeehouse, featuring St. Lawrence String Quartet, at 8 p.m. Tuesday in the Hintz Family Alumni Center's Robb Hall on the Penn State University Park campus.

The Oct. 8 event includes time for discussion and the opportunity to ask questions. Complimentary coffee and cookies will be served. Each attendee receives a Classical Coffeehouse mug, while supply lasts.

St. Lawrence String Quartet, the ensemble-in-residence at Stanford University, is one of the most acclaimed chamber ensembles of its generation.

The quartet also performs three works by Beethoven in concert at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday in Penn State's Schwab Auditorium. Tickets for the Oct. 9 concert are still available.

Classical Coffeehouse is presented in partnership with the Blue & White Society and the Penn State Alumni Association. The Penn State Council of LionHearts also provides support.

The quartet is scheduled to participate in several other free, public engagement events at University Park. Go to St. Lawrence for details.
