Saint Paul String Quartet Competition Quarterfinals

March 14, 2016


Congratulations to Quartet Degas --Maya Buchanan, Joshua Brown, Tess Krope, and Josiah Yoo, an Academy string quartet coached by Sang Mee Lee and Roland Vamos.  The group was selected to compete in the final rounds of the Saint Paul String Quartet Competition (SPSQC) on April 16. The top 6 scoring groups were invited to compete. Founded in 2006 as a performance forum for outstanding high school chamber musicians, the Saint Paul String Quartet Competition's primary mission is to celebrate excellence in string quartet playing, foster an increased appreciation for the chamber music art form, and enhance the music culture in this country. The SPSQC has garnered a national reputation for showcasing our nation's finest pre-college string players and young artists from this event now populate the most prestigious conservatories and music programs in the country.
