The Calidore String Quartet’s “deep reserves of virtuosity and irrepressible dramatic instinct” (New York Times) and “balance of intellect and expression” (Los Angeles Times) have won them global accolades. Their meteoric rise accelerated in 2016, when they made international headlines as the winner of the $100,000 Grand-Prize of the 2016 and inaugural M-Prize International Chamber Music Competition, the largest prize for chamber music in the world. The same year the Calidore were the first North American ensemble to win the Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship and were named BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists. In 2017, they received the Lincoln Center Emerging Artist Award.

Seating for this performance is limited.
