Currently in its 41st concert season, the American String Quartet (ASQ) is internationally recognized as one of the world's finest ensembles and has spent decades honing the luxurious sound for which it is famous.  Well known for its exceptional recordings of quartets by European masters and American composers, the ASQ’s recordings of the complete Mozart string quartets on a matched set of Stradivarius instruments are widely held to set the standard for this repertoire.  Formed in 1974 when its original members were students at the Juilliard School, the ASQ was launched by winning both the Coleman Competition and the Naumburg Chamber Music Award in the same year.  Since that time, the ASQ has continued to delight audiences across the globe with their outstanding performances.  Please join us for this final concert of the 2016-2017 season.  Meet the musicians (Peter Winograd, violin; Laurie Carney, violin; Daniel Avshaolomov, viola; Wolfram Koessel, cello) and enjoy refreshments at the post-concert reception.
