Described by the Chicago Tribune as "an
ensemble that invites your ears, mind, and
spirit into its music", the Avalon String
Quartet has established itself as one of the
country's leading Chamber ensembles.
Formed in 1995 at the Norfolk Chamber
Music Festival, the Quartet came to the fore
after participating in The Isaac Stern
Chamber Music Workshop at Carnegie Hall.
In 1997 Stern invited the Avalon String
Quartet to perform at The Chamber Music
Encounters in Jerusalem and later presented
the ensemble's Carnegie Hall debut at Weill
Recital Hall. The quartet captured first prize
at the Concert Artists Guild Competition in
New York in1999, and top prize at the ARD
Competition in Munich in 2000.
Suitable for adults and children over the age of 8.
