The Rolston String Quartet
Saturday Aug 26, 2017
The 2016 First Prize winner of the prestigious Banff International String Quartet Competition, the Rolston String Quartet was named among the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s 2016 “30 Hot Canadian Classical Musicians Under 30.” The Calgary Herald says they “played affectionately, shifted colours with the mood of every phrase, and showed a caramel blend in tone that only makes you want to hear more.” A winner of Astral’s 2016 National Auditions and the 2016 John Lad Prize, the quartet was also the Grand Prize winner of the Chamber Music Yellow Springs Competition and a prizewinner at the inaugural M-Prize competition and the Bordeaux International String Quartet Competition.
The Rolston String Quartet has performed throughout the U.S., Canada, and Europe, appearing in such venues as the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Koerner Hall at the Toronto Royal Conservatory of Music, and the Auditorium de Bordeaux. Currently the Graduate Quartet-in-Residence at Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music, the Rolstons also participated in residencies and fellowships at the Académie musicale de Villecroze, Aspen Music Festival, Banff Centre, McGill International String Quartet Academy, Norfolk Chamber Music Festival, Robert Mann String Quartet Institute, and the Yehudi Menuhin Chamber Music Festival.
