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. The Quartet has appeared at the world’s most important venues since its founding in 2002.
The Parker Quartet is now in its eighth year as the Blodgett Artists-in-Residence at Harvard University, serving as faculty members in the Department of Music. Recent seasons have included performances and residencies around the United States and Europe, including at the 92nd Street Y, Lincoln Center, the University of Chicago, Wigmore Hall, the University of South Carolina, the Schubert Club and Skidmore College.
