Coordinator Donna Earley remarks, “This group is phenomenal! Gail Haught and I saw them perform in on stage and were just blown away. Please don’t be afraid of their classical roots-their music is very exciting. Throw on a pair of comfy jeans and come join us!!”

With an artist’s grace and a Caribbean soul, the Dali Quartet is today’s freshest voice in Classical and Latin-American music. Anchored in both Venezuela’s El Sistema and in American classical conservatory traditions, this exciting young quartet combines the best of both worlds.

The Dali Quartet’s captivating performances of traditional string quartet and Latin-American repertoire create an extraordinary concert experience that takes listeners on an eclectic journey of rhythm and sound. In the spirit of famed Spanish artist Salvador Dali, the Dali Quartet embraces imagination and excellence as central to its art form. The quartet is comprised of award-winning solo and chamber artists who have appeared at Carnegie Hall, toured widely in Europe and Asia, collaborated with some of the finest composers of our time, and recorded for Dorian, Centaur, and Naxos. As a quartet, they have been invited to perform with emphasis on the Latin-Classical connection for television, festivals, and presenting organizations from Toronto to Texas, and from New York to Venezuela. Trained by world-renowned artists, members of the Dali Quartet are products of Venezuela’s social and music education movement El Sistema and have studied at esteemed institutions such as the Cleveland Institute of Music, Indiana University Bloomington, Conservatoire de Musique de Geneva, Switzerland, and the Simon Bolivar Conservatory in Caracas, Venezuela. Dali Quartet appears by arrangement with Jonathan Wentworth Assoc. Ltd.
