Winner of a Cleveland Quartet Award, an Avery Fisher Career Grant, and the 2013 Banff International String Quartet Competition, the Dover Quartet has firmly established a place at the top of its field. Highlights of its 2017–18 season have included appearances at Chamber Music Houston, the Kennedy Center, the Philadelphia Chamber Music Society, the Library of Congress, and the Detroit Chamber Music Society, in addition to numerous other engagements throughout North America and Europe.
