“…a dialogue of the highest musical level”
– Washington Post
The Portland String Quartet has been performing, teaching and recording with its founding members since l969.
In l986 they were proclaimed “Maine treasures” and awarded Honorary Doctor of Music degrees by Colby College where they continue to serve as Artists in Residence.
Coming together from musical training at Curtis, Eastman, Indiana, Juilliard, Oberlin, and San Francisco State College, the quartet members have played an important role in the artistic renaissance of the State of Maine, championing Maine and American composers both nationally and internationally.
