Described as an "exceptional ensemble with impressive confidence in its interpretations" and "Minnesota's foremost teaching and performing string quartet", the Artaria String Quartet recently celebrated its 30th year of chamber music concerts. Winners of the 2004 McKnight Fellowship for Performing Musicians, and named 2013-14 Minnesota Public Radio Artists-in-Residence, Artaria was also featured on Twin Cities Public Television as part of the "Minnesota Originals" series. Artaria's refined and thoughtful playing has brought them to major venues throughout the United States and Europe, on national television and public radio stations, and at top summer festivals including the Banff Centre in Canada, Festival de LEpau in France, and the Tanglewood Music Center in Lenox, MA. Artaria has earned numerous awards from the National Endowment for the Arts, Chamber Music America, and the Minnesota State Arts Board for excellence in performance and educational outreach.

They are currently presenting the cycle of string quartets of Beethoven, to which they give, in the words of one reviewer, "a magnificent and vital interpretation though the outlines and flow were quite familiar, it was like hearing the piece (Beethovens Quartet No. 8 in E Minor) for the very first time." Join us for their all-Beethoven program of three string quartets celebrating the master's 250th birthday!
