About the Artists:

Described by the Chicago Tribune as «an ensemble that invites you — ears, mind, and spirit — into its music,» the Avalon String Quartet has established itself as one of the country's leading chamber music ensembles. The quartet performs in major venues worldwide, including an annual concert series in historic Fullerton Hall at the Art Institute of Chicago, where it has presented the complete quartet cycles of Beethoven, Bartok, and Brahms in recent seasons.

The Avalon captured the top prize at the ARD Competition in Munich (2000) and first prize at the Concert Artists Guild Competition in New York City (1999). In its early years, the ensemble trained intensively with the Juilliard Quartet at the Juilliard School, the Emerson Quartet at the Hartt School of Music, and the Vermeer Quartet at Northern Illinois University.
