With unparalleled artistry and enduring vigor, the Juilliard String Quartet—celebrating its 75th Anniversary this season—continues to inspire audiences around the world. Founded in 1946 and hailed by the Boston Globe as “the most important American quartet in history,” the ensemble draws on a deep and vital engagement to the classics, while embracing the mission of championing new works. Each performance of the Juilliard String Quartet is a unique experience, bringing together the four members’ profound understanding, total commitment, and unceasing curiosity in sharing the wonders of the string quartet literature. Ronald Copes, former faculty member in UCSB’s Department of Music, has played with the Juilliard String Quartet since 1997. In May 2022, the Quartet named violist Molly Carr to its ensemble, filling the void left by the passing of Carr’s mentor and friend, much-loved violist Roger Tapping.
Members of the Juilliard String Quartet will offer a Master Class to string students in the Department of Music at UC Santa Barbara
Sunday, October 23, 2022, Karl Geiringer Hall, 2:00PM.
