Described as “the epitome of confidence and finesse” (Gramophone Magazine) and “a miracle of unified thought” (La Presse, Montreal), the Calidore String Quartet has established an international reputation for its informed, polished, and passionate performances. The Calidore String Quartet is currently artists-in-residence and visiting faculty at Stony Brook University (SUNY) and was appointed to the prestigious roster of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center Two for the 2016- 2019 seasons. In recognition of their international acclaim, the quartet won the 2016 Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship, becoming the first North American ensemble to win the prestigious award.
The Henry J. Bruman Summer Chamber Music Festival is pleased to welcome the Calidore String Quartet to the spectacular Powell Library Rotunda on the UCLA campus for a special chamber music performance featuring the work of Tchaikovsky and Mendelssohn.
Admission is free of charge and seating is available on a first-come-first-served basis. All are welcome to attend.
The Henry J. Bruman Summer Chamber Music Festival was founded in 1988 by Professor Henry J. Bruman (1913–2005), who sought to introduce new audiences to chamber music at informal concerts on the UCLA campus.
