    More about the Cassatt String Quartet:

    Acclaimed as one of America’s outstanding ensembles, the Manhattan based Cassatt String Quartet has performed throughout North America, Europe, and the Far East, with appearances at New York’s Alice Tully Hall and Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, the Tanglewood Music Theater, the Kennedy Center and Library of Congress in Washington, DC, the Theatre des Champs-Élysées in Paris and Maeda Hall in Tokyo. The Quartet has been presented on major radio stations such as National Public Radio’s Performance Today, Boston’s WGBH, New York’s WQXR and WNYC, and on Canada’s CBC Radio and Radio France.

    “… an undulant, lyrical and insightful performance…” by the Cassatt Quartet was recently cited in The New York Times. The 2014-2015 season highlights include their debut at the Beijing Modern Music Festival and concerts in Chiba, Japan, appearances at the NY Botanical Gardens, Tenri Cultural Center, Bargemusic, Mohonk Mountain House, Maverick Concerts and the Westchester Chamber Society (NY), Music Mountain and Treetops Chamber Series (CT), the Seal Bay Festival (ME) and their annual Cassatt in the Basin! educational chamber music residency (TX).

    Named three times by The New Yorker magazine’s Best Of…CD Selection, they have over thirty CDs and YouTube postings. They are named for the celebrated American impressionist painter Mary Cassatt.

    Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation (MAAF) has recently awarded the Cassatt String Quartet a coveted grant to help support their engagements across the globe as part of the 2015 USArtists International (USAI) program. USAI is the only national initiative in the United States solely devoted to promoting the excellence and diversity of American performing arts abroad. The program works to strengthen the creative and professional development of American artists through participation at important international festivals and performing arts markets. The program is made possible by the generous support of the National Endowment for the Arts and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Engagements supported through the program provide American performing artists the opportunity to exchange ideas and practices with their counterparts around the world, and sustain their careers through exposure to new audiences and access to the international marketplace.
