A graduate of the Cleveland Institute of Music, the Juilliard School, Mannes School of Music, and the New England Conservatory, Isaacman-Beck studied with Donald Weilerstein, Ronald Copes, Mark Steinberg, Laurie Smukler, David Updegraff, and Mary West.

"Ari brings to the Dalí his “enormous soul and a big, vibrant sound,” his deep expertise and open approach to a wide variety of repertoire, and a commitment to community engagement," the quartet said.

"We want to give our most heartfelt farewell and salute to violinist Domenic Salerni, whose tenure with the Dalí was a rich and dynamic period for us and for our audiences."
