Event Details

Special Guest Tonight: The Rolston String Quartet welcomes Order of Canada clarinetist James Campbell for a performance of the Mozart Clarinet Quintet.

A monumental year, 2016 saw Canada’s Rolston String Quartet earn attention and gain recognition from international audiences and critics alike. Culminating the year with a First Prize win at the 12th Banff International String Quartet Competition (BISQC), the quartet’s winning included Astral’s National Auditions, and Grand Prize of the 31st Chamber Music Yellow Springs Competition. They were also prizewinners at the 2016 Bordeaux International String Quartet Competition and the inaugural M-Prize competition. There is no wonder they were named among Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s “30 Hot Canadian Classical Musicians Under 30” in 2016. Rolston String Quartet continues to be recognized for their musical excellence, they are the 2018 recipient of – and first international ensemble chosen for – the prestigious Cleveland Quartet Award from Chamber Music America.

Rolston String Quartet began as the Yale School of Music’s fellowship quartet-in-residence in the fall of 2017. They have also served as the graduate quartet-in-residence at Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music, and have participated in residencies and fellowships at the Académie musicale de Villecroze, Aspen Music Festival, Banff Centre, McGill International String Quartet Academy, Norfolk Chamber Music Festival, Robert Mann String Institute, St. Lawrence String Quartet Seminar, and the Yehudi Menuhin Chamber Music Festival.
