About the Concert
The Calidore String Quartet—violinists Jeffrey Myers and Ryan Meehan, violist Jeremy Berry, and cellist Estelle Choi—made international headlines as the winner of the $100,000 Grand Prize of the 2016 and inaugural M-Prize International Chamber Music Competition, the largest prize for chamber music in the world. Also in 2016, the quartet became the first North American ensemble to win the Borletti-Buitoni Trust Fellowship and was named BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists, an honor that brings with it recordings, international radio broadcasts, and appearances in Britain's most prominent venues and festivals. Most recently the Calidore was honored with a 2017 Lincoln Center Emerging Artist Award. The 2017-18 season continues the Calidore’s three-year residency with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center’s CMS Two program.
