Are you interested in your students exploring expressions of emotion, movement, and the world around us – perhaps even trying their hand at musical composition? The workshops provided by The Argus Quartet – one of NYC’s vibrant string quartets – take students on a journey through string music, from the classical to the contemporary!
The Argus Quartet is dedicated to encouraging the joys of human connection, community, and discovery by bringing a wide-ranging repertoire to life through bold and meaningful programming and a vibrant commitment to collaboration and education. The Quartet has emerged as one of today’s most versatile ensembles, winning First Prize at the M-Prize Competition and the Concert Artists Guild Competition and appearing in recent seasons at Carnegie Hall, Alice Tully Hall, and the Ravinia Festival. Highlights of the 2019-20 season included performances for Lincoln Center’s Great Performers series and Schneider Concerts at the New School. Argus has worked with many of today’s leading musical voices, including Andrew Norman, Christopher Theofanidis, and Augusta Read Thomas, and has received commissioning grants from the Koussevitsky Foundation, Chamber Music America, and the Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts. Currently based in New York, the Quartet previously served as Fellowship Quartet at the Yale School of Music and Graduate Resident Quartet at the Juilliard School.
