Guest Ensemble 2019/20 Season
The Arte String Quartet is a vibrant, young ensemble based in New York City and comprised of graduate students of the Juilliard school. Hailing from California, North Carolina and Belgium, these four musicians share a vision that chamber music embodies both intellectual and emotional vitality. The Arte Quartet is a member of Juilliard’s prestigious Honors Program.
As chamber musicians, members of the quartet have performed across five continents at venues such as the Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, Berlin Philharmonie, Théâtre des Champs-Élysées, Vienna Musikverein and have performed alongside such musicians as Robert McDonald, Ida Kavafian, Natasha Brofsky, Anthony Marwood, Augustin Dumay, Gary Hoffman, and Laurence Lesser. They have attended music festivals such as the Ravinia Steans Young Artist Program, Yellow Barn, Norfolk Chamber Music Festival, Tanglewood Music Festival, Prussia Cove, the Seiji Ozawa International Academy, and the Music Academy of the West.
