Part of the 2023 Winter Chamber Music Festival

Jeffrey Myers and Ryan Meehan, violin; Jeremy Berry, viola; Estelle Choi, cello; Xavier Foley, double bass

Praised by the New York Times for its “deep reserves of virtuosity and irrepressible dramatic instinct,” the Calidore String Quartet is the recipient of a 2018 Avery Fisher Career Grant, a 2017 Lincoln Center Emerging Artist Award, and Grand Prize winner of the 2016 M-Prize International Chamber Music Competition. Highlights of their 2021-22 season included returns to Wigmore Hall, Alice Tully Hall, and the Philadelphia Chamber Music Society and debuts at the Library of Congress, 92nd Street Y, and Harvard University, as well as in The Hague and Antwerp. Recent collaborations have included the Emerson Quartet and pianists Jeffrey Kahane, Henry Kramer, and Gabriel Fahnenstiel. Joining the quartet is double bassist Xavier Foley, a fellow Avery Fisher Career Grant recipient and winner of the 2016 Young Concert Artist Auditions. Foley has appeared as soloist with the Atlanta Symphony, Philadelphia Orchestra, Nashville Symphony, Sphinx Symphony, and Sphinx Virtuosi at Carnegie Hall. Also a composer, he was co-commissioned by Carnegie Hall and the Sphinx Organization to write a new work titled For Justice and Peace for Violin, Bass, and String Orchestra.
