The Linden String Quartet is the gold medal-ist and grand prize-winner of the 2009 Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition, recipient of the Coleman-Barstow Prize at the 2009 Coleman National Chamber Ensemble Competition, and first prize winner of the Sixth International Hugo Kauder Competition. The Quartet has quickly risen to become one the country’s premier young ensembles and is the graduate string quartet-in-residence at Yale University studying under the Tokyo String Quartet. Formed in the spring of 2008, the Quartet has already been praised for its “remarkable depth of technique and brilliantly nuanced, sumptuous tonality… delivered with a palpable, infectious joy.” The Quartet is dedi- cated to community and educational outreach and has worked extensively with the Cleveland Chamber Music Society, the Canton Symphony Orchestra, and New Performing Arts to bring music to thousands of elementary school students throughout Ohio and Kentucky.

Their mentors have included the Cavani String Quartet, Peter Salaff, and Paul Kantor. The group has also worked with Donald Weilerstein and William Preucil of the Cleveland Quartet, Joel Smirnoff and Robert Mann of the Juilliard String Quartet, and members of the Guarneri, Tokyo, and St. Lawrence Quartets. The Quartet has collaborated with guitarist and CIM faculty member Jason Vieaux, mezzo-soprano Janna Baty, violinist Geoff Nuttall, and pianist Peter Frankl.
