During the past nine years, the Cypress String Quartet
has gained a reputation for its bold programming,
educational outreach and dedication to performing both
contemporary and traditional classical music. Hailed as a
Generation X Ensemble to Watch by Chamber
Music Magazine, the San Francisco-based quartet has
performed all over the country, collaborating with
contemporary composers and participating in public
seminars with Isaac Stern and the Amadeus Quartet.
The quartet has also been praised for its educational
contributions as a Quartet-in-Residence at the Banff
Centre for the Arts and San Jose University and outreach
programs for high school students in New Mexico, Los
Angeles, Philadelphia and Chicago. In 2004, the ensemble
was awarded the McGraw-Hill Companies Robert
Sherman Award for Music Education and Community Outreach.
