Winner of the 2022 Banff International String Quartet Competition and hailed for their “blazing virtuosity” by Violinist.com, the Isidore String Quartet was formed at the Juilliard School in 2019 with a focus on revisiting, rediscovering, and reinvigorating the string quartet repertoire. The quartet has performed at Alice Tully Hall, the Kennedy Center, and the Ravinia Festival, and their 2022-23 season includes appearances on the Kennedy Center’s Fortas Chamber Music Concerts as well as their New York City debut with the Schneider Concerts at the Mannes School of Music. The current season also sees the beginning of their work as a resident ensemble with PROJECT: MUSIC HEALS US, providing encouragement, education, and healing to marginalized communities.
