Based out of Oberlin, Ohio, the Cornell Quartet is a group of classically trained string musicians each pursuing an undergraduate degree in performance at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music. In the Summer of 2018 they participated as a fellowship quartet at the Credo Music festival in Oberlin, working closely with the nationally renowned Arianna String Quartet and other Credo faculty. The Cornell Quartet studies with former Pacifica Quartet violinist Sibbi Bernhardsson, and has performed in masterclasses with Joel Krosnick, Richard Aaron, Merry Peckham, the Doric String Quartet, Cuarteto Cassals, and the Brentano Quartet. In 2018, they premiered “And So I Looked to the River” by composer Jessica Hunt at the Detroit Chamber Winds and Strings Festival and did an eight concert West Coast tour. During the summer of 2019, they will be attending Encore Chamber Music Festival as well as the Saint Paul Chamber Music Institute. When they are not rehearsing, the quartet can be found playing cards or holding discussions about which flavor of Oreo is best.
