Violinist Eric Tanner of the Perugino Quartet estimates he's been performing at the Chamber Music Festival of Saugatuck for around 17 of its 29 years.  In the final concert of the season, his quartet will be doubled by additional players to perform the String Octet In F major Op 17, by Niels Gade. It's an exciting find for musicians who relish string octets.
