The world-renowned Miró Quartet comes to the Seattle University campus for 8 days of concerts and master classes, thanks to Professor Quinton Morris, director of the music program. Morris studied with violinist Daniel Ching, an original member of quarter, and invited the quartet to campus. In addition to violinist Daniel Ching, the quarter features violinist William Fedkenheuer, violist John Largess, and cellist Joshua Gindele.

“The Miró Quartet has performed in every major concert hall in the world and now will play in the intimate setting of our auditorium,” Morris said. “This is a real treat for our students and all of us in Seattle who know their work.”

The quartet will give a concert open to the public at 7:30 p.m. on May 11. The concert will feature works by Schubert, Beethoven, and Brahms. Details here.  The group will also hold master classes for Seattle University students in the String Performance program and perform in the community.

The Seattle University and community appearances by the Miró Quartet  are funded in part by the Pigott Family Endowment for the Arts.

The College of Arts and Sciences, the largest college in Seattle University, offers 42 undergraduate majors, 37 minors, and 7 master's degrees, including a B.M. in String Performance and MFA in Arts Leadership.
