Spend the evening with three-time Grammy®-nominated Quartet San Francisco, whose work has been hailed by critics as “…a remarkable musical experience…simply delicious.”


Three-time Grammy®-nominated Quartet San Francisco introduces audiences to a fresh, vibrant body of string quartet literature in what’s been hailed by critics as “…a remarkable musical experience…simply delicious.” The group has a singular mission: to make the world a better place through music.

QSF has toured Italy, China, South Korea, Japan, Turkey and Guam, performing in Cremona, Foggia, Seoul, Tokyo, Hyogo, Sanda, Istanbul, Hagatna, and throughout central and eastern China. As winners of the Argentine Consulate’s International Tango Competition in New York, they performed tangos for an Argentine audience at the historic Café Tortoni in Buenos Aires.

U.S. appearances include New York's Le Poisson Rouge, Yoshi's Jazz Clubs in San Francisco and Oakland, the Brubeck Room in the Wilton Library (at the invitation of Dave Brubeck) and the Mendocino Music Festival, and they have performed in concerts with the Marin Symphony, the Peninsula Symphony and the Tulsa Symphony, and made guest appearances with numerous chamber orchestras.
