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 Chamber Music Competitions – and former top prize recipients at the Hamburg and ARD Munich International Chamber Music Competitions.

The ensemble are also recent recipients of the coveted Lincoln Center Emerging Artist Award, Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship – and an Avery Fisher Career Grant.

The Calidore Quartet is currently on the rosters of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center’s CMS Two program and the BBC Radio 3 ‘New Generation Artists’ – 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.
