“…exceptional virtuosity [and] imaginative interpretation.”-The Washington Post


Inspiring performances, luminous sound, and exceptional musicianship are the hallmarks of the GRAMMY Award-winning Parker Quartet. Renowned for its dynamic interpretations and polished, expansive colors, the group has rapidly distinguished itself as one of the preeminent ensembles of its generation, dedicated purely to the sound and depth of their music.

One of our favorite quartets, the Parker makes their fourth appearance at our series.
