VC Artists Dover Quartet have this week been announced as The Kennedy Center’s new three-year-term Quartet-In-Residence, in Washington DC.
In their new role, the ensemble will perform a number of times during the 2018/19 season – including a season opening recital, a performance at Composer-in-Residence Mason Bates’s KC Jukebox series and a number of educational outreach initiatives.
“We couldn’t be more excited to begin this 3-year residency at the Kennedy Center,” the Dovers have told The Violin Channel.
“We have always admired this venerable organization … not only for their commitment to presenting live music at the highest possible level, but also because they are passionate about music education and community involvement … we look forward to being a part of their great mission,” they have said.
The Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio will continue in their role as the performing arts venue’s Trio-in-Residence.
