Love Letters From Tesla

“… an exciting young ensemble with a bright future …” — Edward Dusinberre, Takacs Quartet

The Tesla Quartet is a rising star among young American string quartets. Formed at Juilliard and mentored by the renowned Takacs Quartet, they play with great energy, insight, and imagination. Grammy-nominated composer Carter Pann will join the quartet in an extended residency for community and educational outreach in Tulsa.
