The New York-based Calidore String Quartet has in recent years firmly established themselves as one of the most celebrated young chamber ensembles to emerge internationally – praised for their “confidence”, “finesse”, “intellect” and “expression”.

Comprising violinists Jeffrey Myers and Ryan Meehan, violist Jeremy Berry and cellist Estelle Choi, the Calidore Quartet are former 1st prize winners at the M-Prize and Fischoff competitions and former top prize recipients at the Hamburg and ARD Munich International Chamber Music Competitions.

They were also recently awarded a coveted Lincoln Center Emerging Artist Award and a Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship – and were announced as BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists.

The ensemble is currently on the roster of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center’s CMS Two program – and serve as Visiting Guest Artists at the University of Delaware and the University of Michigan School of Music.

Their mentors include Arnold Steinhardt, Andre Roy, David Finckel, Gunther Pichler, Guillaume Sutre and the Emerson and Ebene String Quartets.
