The Terra String Quartet, formerly known as the Arte String Quartet, is based in New York City and composed of graduates of the Juilliard School’s prestigious Honors Program and of the Manhattan School of Music. Hailing from five continents, these four musicians share a vision that chamber music embodies both intellectual and emotional vitality.

Members of the quartet have performed around the world at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts and Carnegie Hall in New York City, The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing, China, Théâtre des Champs-Élysées in Paris, France, Lotte Concert Hall in Seoul, South Korea, Daegu Concert House in Daegu, South Korea, and Vienna Musikverein in Vienna, Austria, among others. They have played alongside such musicians as Robert McDonald, Ida Kavafian, Natasha Brofsky, Anthony Marwood, Augustin Dumay, Gary Hoffman, and Laurence Lesser. They have also attended music festivals including the Ravinia Steans Young Artist Program, Yellow Barn, Music@Menlo, Norfolk Chamber Music Festival, Prussia Cove, and the Seiji Ozawa International Academy.

The Quartet has performed at The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Alice Tully Hall as part of Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts’s “Wednesdays at One” series, performing the Schubert Cello Quintet with Natasha Brofsky, and as part of the Four Seasons Chamber Music Festival’s Winter Workshop in North Carolina, where they performed with Robert McDonald, and its members have studied under the guidance of Misha Amory, Daniel Avshalamov, Natasha Brofsky, Catherine Cho, and Joseph Lin.

They are the first quartet selected for the Four Seasons Chamber Music Festival’s String Quartet Fellowship Initiative, which began in winter 2022.
