"... the Dover Quartet players have it in them to become the next Guarneri String Quartet - they're that good." - The Chicago Tribune
The phenomenal Dover Quartet catapulted to international stardom following a stunning sweep of the 2013 Banff Competition, at which they won every prize. Named the Cleveland Quartet Awardwinner, and honored with the coveted Avery Fisher Career Grant, the Dover has become one of the most in-demand ensembles in the world. The Quartet’s rise from noteworthy young ensemble to the top of their field has been “practically meteoric” (Strings). With its burnished warmth, incisive rhythms, and instinctual unanimity, the Quartet’s distinctive sound has helped confirm its status as “the young American string quartet of the moment” (New Yorker). The Dover serves as the quartet-in-residence for the Bienen School of Music at Northwestern University, Chamber Music Northwest, Artosphere, the Amelia Island Chamber Music Festival, and Peoples’ Symphony in New York, and continues in its role as the first-ever quartet-in-residence for the Kennedy Center.
The Dover Quartet is dedicated to sharing its music with under-served communities and is actively involved with Music for Food, an initiative enabling musicians to raise resources and awareness in the fight against hunger.
The Lenard Midsummer Music Chamber Series is made possible through the generosity of Jean and John Lenard.
