The Grammy-winning string quartet "are matchless [in] their supreme artistry." ~The Guardian

The Grammy Award-winning string quartet has been moving audiences and selling out concerts at CU Boulder for more than three decades.

This year, the quartet welcomes a new member—CU Boulder Assistant Professor of Violin Harumi Rhodes—acclaimed by The New York Times as a “deeply expressive violinist.”
