Graduate String Quartet
The mission of the Graduate String Quartet at UNCG is to provide a diverse, quality chamber music experience for advanced graduate students and to provide outreach for the School of Music both on and off campus. The quartet will perform recitals on campus as well as off, and is often called upon to represent the College of Visual and Performing Arts at official university functions. In addition, members of the string quartet are expected to serve as principals of the University Symphony Orchestra.
