Master Class with Dover String Quartet on Thursday, April 27


The Dover Quartet will be giving a master class on Thursday, April 27, 2017 at 10:30 AM at the Jorgensen Center for the Performing Arts, Chamber Stage.

Considered one of the most remarkably talented string quartets ever to emerge at such a young age, the Dover Quartet catapulted to international stardom following a stunning sweep of the 2013 Banff International String Quartet Competition, winning the Grand Prize as well as all three Special Prizes. They won the Grand Prize at the 2010 Fischoff Competitioin, and are now the first ever Quartet-in-Residence for the venerated Curtis Institute of Music.
