The phenomenal Dover String Quartet catapulted to international stardom following a stunning sweep of the 2013 Banff Competition, at which they won every prize.
The Dover has become one of the most in-demand ensembles in the world and on Jan. 21, they will make their Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center debut. An unforgettable evening of live and live-streamed chamber music from world-class string instrumentalists as the Dover String Quartet comes to The River District.
Hailed as “the next Guarneri Quartet— they’re that good” (Chicago Tribune) and “the young American string quartet of the moment,” (New Yorker), in addition to its faculty role as the inaugural Penelope P. Watkins Ensemble in Residence at the Curtis Institute of Music, the Dover Quartet holds residencies with the Kennedy Center, Bienen School of Music at Northwestern University, Artosphere, the Amelia Island Chamber Music Festival, and Peoples’ Symphony Concerts in New York.
Among the group’s honors are the Avery Fisher Career Grant, Chamber Music America’s Cleveland Quartet Award, and Lincoln Center’s Hunt Family Award. The Dover Quartet has also won top prizes at the Wigmore Hall International String Quartet Competition and the Fischoff Chamber Music Competition.
Cocktails begin at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 21, and the concert is at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $45 in advance and $50 day of show (students $10).
The Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center is located at 2301 First St. in the historic downtown Fort Myers River District.
