A cultural cornerstone of Stanford, the world-acclaimed St. Lawrence String Quartet continues its fabled partnership with the University, directing the music department’s Chamber Music Program, concertizing at Stanford Live, hosting a popular summer seminar, and running the Emerging String Quartet Program.
Founded in 1989, the St. Lawrence String Quartet will mark their 30th anniversary season with three stunning Sunday performances in the Stanford Live 2019–20 season. In September, the SLSQ will be joined by guest oboist James Austin Smith—then in May, the SLSQ joins forces with award-wining pianist Gilles Vonsattel.
