The Dalí Quartet brings its signature mix of Latin American, Classical and Romantic repertoire to stages and audiences of all kinds. The quartet’s passionate energy is poured into everything they do, generating critical and audience acclaim for their Classical Roots, Latin Soul. Based in Philadelphia, the quartet has toured and made appearances for distinguished chamber music and cultural center series in the U.S., Canada and South America.
Trained by world-renowned artists, members of the Dalí Quartet are from Venezuela, Puerto Rico and the US, and have studied at esteemed institutions such as the Cleveland Institute of Music, Yale University, Indiana University Bloomington and the Simón Bolivar Conservatory in Caracas, Venezuela.
The Dalí Quartet is devoted to audience development and to reaching communities of all kinds. The group’s Latin Fiesta Workshops and Family Concerts in both traditional and innovative settings, move listeners – literally! The Dalí Quartet is sought after for master-classes and professional development workshops for students, and opens musical vistas for younger kids with its week-long Any Given Child programs for the Tulsa Public School System.
The quartet’s International Music Festival is an admired chamber music and orchestral program. Founded in 2004, it develops the performance skills of young musicians through the semi-professional level. This past August, Friday Arts visited the camp held during the festival, and had the opportunity to meet many of the young talented participants and staff, and experience the passion they all held for music.
