The New York City-based Solera Quartet is the Quartet in Residence at the University of Notre Dame. Members Tricia Park and Miki-Sophia Cloud, violins; Molly Carr, viola; and Andrew Janss, cello, have been featured in such world-renowned international venues as Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center and Lincoln Center. They have also participated in prestigious festivals such as the Marlboro Music Festival, [email protected], and Ravinia’s Steans Institute. Noteworthy accomplishments include an Avery Fisher Career grant, a Grammy Award nomination, top prizes at international competitions, and a CMS2 artist roster appointment at the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. Members are graduates of the Juilliard School, Harvard College, New England Conservatory, and the Manhattan and the Yale Schools of Music. All four members of the Solera Quartet are also artist-entrepreneurs in their own right, leading and curating festivals, series, and ensembles. The quartet’s exciting 2016-2017 season includes collaborations with cellist Merry Peckham, a West Coast tour, performances at NYC’s Fashion Institute of Technology and on the Brooklyn Public Library’s Chamber Players Concert Series. The quartet will also be the resident quartet at the 2017 Perlman Music Program. Deeply committed to sharing music as an agent for social good, the quartet will also continue to perform in hospitals, nursing homes, and correctional facilities throughout the season.
