The Calidore String Quartet’s “deep reserves of virtuosity and irrepressible dramatic instinct” (The New York Times) has won them accolades across the globe. They recently made international headlines as the winner of the Grand-Prize of the inaugural 2016 M-Prize International Chamber Music Competition, the largest prize for chamber music in the world. Also in 2016, the quartet became the first North American ensemble to win the Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship and was named BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists. Most recently in 2017, Calidore was honored with the Lincoln Center Emerging Artist Award. Don’t miss their Chautauqua debut.
