The phenomenal Dover Quartet catapulted to international stardom following a stunning sweep of the 2013 Banff Competition. Recently named the Cleveland Quartet Award winner, and awarded 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 up-and-coming young ensemble to occupying a spot at the top of their field has been “practically meteoric” (Strings). With its burnished warmth, incisive rhythms, and natural phrasing, the Quartet’s distinctive sound has helped confirm its status as “the young American string quartet of the moment” (New Yorker). The Quartet serves as the quartet-in-residence for the Bienen School of Music at Northwestern University.

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. As part of the season of giving, we will be hosting a food drive at this performance in effort to help end hunger in Orange County. Please bring non-perishable food item(s) to the performance, as there will be donation bins located near the entrance of the Samueli Theater where you will be able to drop off your items. With your support, we will make a difference in this effort against hunger, and help the 301,000 children, seniors, individuals, and families who risk going hungry each month.
