Amelia Island, FL — The Amelia Island Chamber Music Festival presents members of the Dover Quartet on Sunday, February 13th at 3:00 p.m. at the Historic Nassau County Courthouse, Fernandina Beach. For additional information and tickets visit AICMF.ORG.

Hailed as “the next Guarneri Quartet” (Chicago Tribune) and “the young American string quartet of the moment,” (New Yorker), the Dover Quartet catapulted to international stardom in 2013, following a stunning sweep of all prizes at the Banff Competition and has since become one of the most in-demand ensembles in the world.  The Dover Quartet, the Festival’s quartet-in-residence, is also the first-ever quartet-in-residence for the Kennedy Center, and the recipient of the coveted Avery Fisher Career Grant.  The Dover is also quartet-in-residence for the Bienen School of Music at Northwestern University, Chamber Music Northwest, Artosphere, and Peoples’ Symphony in New York. The quartet’s distinctive sound has helped confirm its status as “the young American string quartet of the moment” (New Yorker).  The afternoon’s program will include Haydn (The Lark), Mozart (Dissonance) and Ravel.

The Dover Quartet appears by arrangement with the Curtis Institute of Music, where it serves as the Penelope P. Watkins Ensemble in Residence.
