Formed in 1976 and based in New York City, the Emerson was one of the first quartets formed with two violinists alternating in the first chair position. In 2002, the Quartet began to stand for most of its concerts, with the cellist seated on a riser. The Emerson Quartet, which took its name from the American poet and philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson, is Quartet-in-Residence at Stony Brook University. In January 2015, the Quartet received the Richard J. Bogomolny National Service Award, Chamber Music America's highest honor, in recognition of its significant and lasting contribution to the chamber music field.
The Emerson String Quartet has performed, to great avail, in the past at Concordia Conservatory as part of the Hoch Chamber Series and will continue to engage audiences through a performance in the Conservatory's 2016-17 season. Their adventurous and significant programing will include works by Mozart, Ravel and Shostakovich.
