“an electrifying performance” Strad Magazine

The Rolston String Quartet have earned rave recognition from international audiences and critics alike. Winners of the 12th Banff International String Quartet Competition (BISQC), the quartet’s awards include Astral’s National Auditions, and Grand Prize of the 31st Chamber Music Yellow Springs Competition. Not surprisingly, they were among Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s “30 Hot Canadian Classical Musicians Under 30” in 2016.

Performing for Howland audiences for the first time, they will present works by Beethoven and Mendelssohn. This concert has been designated our 2019-20 Founders’ Concert.
