Pick-Staiger Concert Hall

We regret to announce the Bienen School of Music has recently learned its Quartet-in-Residence, the Dover Quartet, must unfortunately cancel its scheduled performance and live stream on Tuesday, February 15 due to a family emergency.

We are actively pursuing a rescheduled concert date in the spring, and will communicate this news as soon as it has been confirmed.

If you hold tickets to the February 15 performance, they will be honored on the rescheduled date. Should it prove impossible to reschedule this performance during our spring academic quarter, ticket holders will be notified and the cost of your ticket will automatically be refunded. Patrons who would prefer to exchange their ticket or receive an equal account credit are invited to contact the Concerts@Bienen Ticket Office at 847-467-4000. Ticket Office hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, and noon to 3 p.m. Saturday.

The Dover Quartet's residency is sponsored in part by the generous support of the Elizabeth F. Cheney Foundation.

Catapulted to international stardom following a stunning sweep of all prizes at the Banff International String Quartet Competition in 2013, the Dover Quartet has become one of the most in-demand ensembles in the world. Among their honors and awards are the Avery Fisher Career Grant, Chamber Music America’s Cleveland Quartet Award, and Lincoln Center’s Hunt Family Award, as well as grand and first prizes at the Fischoff Chamber Music Competition. In 2020, the quartet’s documentary Strings Attached: On the Road with the Dover Quartet was the most-viewed film at the Martha’s Vineyard FILMUSIC Festival. Their 2020-21 season included debuts with Berkeley’s Cal Performances and their first-ever tour of Latin America, both conducted virtually. The quartet’s first volume of the complete Beethoven cycle, focused on the composer’s Op. 18 quartets, was released by Cedille Records in September 2020.
