The Pacifica Quartet has been a significant part of Chicago’s music scene for almost two decades. The news came last week that Pacifica’s tenure as the University of Chicago’s ensemble in residence will come to a close at the end of this season. Chicago audiences should therefore avail themselves of the remaining opportunities to catch one of the country’s finest chamber ensembles.

The Pacifica Quartet will perform Alfred Schnittke’s String Quartet No. 3 this Sunday alongside works from two composers the group has specialized in: Mendelssohn’s String Quartet in E minor, Op. 44, no. 2, and Shostakovich’s String Quartet No. 13.

Concert time for the University of Chicago Presents event is 3 p.m. Sunday at the Logan Center for the Performing Arts.; 773-702-8068
