Upcoming events from the TU Chamber Music Program!

Chamber Music Tulsa is a proud supporter of the University of Tulsa’s Chamber Music program! Please join us this weekend for the following events:

Serafin String Quartet

Hailed for “silken finesse and gritty vibrancy” by Gramophone Magazine and for “playing with style and sophistication” by The Strad Magazine, Serafin String Quartet debuted at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall in 2004 and has consistently received superlatives in the press and ovations by audiences around the nation. The Quartet’s highly acclaimed Naxos (2013) release featuring world premiere recordings of early chamber works by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Jennifer Higdon was listed as “Top 10 Classical Albums in 2013″ by Philadelphia’s City Paper. The Quartet’s debut recording on Centaur (2010) is an “American Tapestry” of works by American composers and composers influenced by American sounds, including Barber, Dvorák, Gershwin and William Grant Still. Featured by Strings Magazine for innovative concert programming, Serafin String Quartet has been applauded at performances around the nation. The Quartet serves as Quartet in Residence at the University of Delaware and takes its name from master violin maker, Sanctus Serafin, who in 1728 crafted the violin currently played by SSQ violinist Kate Ransom. The other members play Testore instruments from the same era, thanks to generous support from Dr. William Stegeman.. For more information, please visit www.serafinquartet.org.
