The internationally acclaimed all-female Colorado String Quartet will be in concert at Tennessee Tech University’s Wattenbarger Auditorium on Monday, Nov. 7, at 7:30 p.m.

Hailed as one of the best string quartets in the world, the group has won both the Banff International String Quartet Competition and the Naumburg Chamber Music Award.

The group’s performances have been described as “lyrically finessing and musically honorific.” The Colorado Quartet style combines a scholarly knowledge of the classical quartet literature with energy, passion and a focus on details.

“These four women are the musical equals of any string quartet in the world,” according to a review in The Seattle Times. “That’s a bold statement, but the musicians have the goods to back it up. In a tastefully varied program of Haydn, Schubert and American composer Katherine Hoover, the Colorado Quartet demonstrated an amazing mix of individual and ensemble musicianship.”

Members of the Colorado Quartet include Diane Chaplin on cello, Marka Gustavsson on viola, Deborah Redding on violin and Julie Rosenfeld also on violin.

A Center Stage event, the concert is free and open to the public.
