The Emerson String Quartet returns to Wharton Center for one night only on Friday, Oct. 18, 2019.

The quartet has made more than 30 acclaimed recordings and has been honored with nine Grammys®, three Gramophone Awards, the Avery Fisher Prize and Musical America’s Ensemble of the Year.

Emerson String Quartet frequently collaborates with some of today’s most esteemed composers to premiere new works. They have also partnered in performance with soloists including Renée Fleming, Emanuel Ax and Yefim Bronfman.

The New York Times says, "The performances were everything we have come to expect from this superb ensemble: technically resourceful, musically insightful, cohesive, full of character and always interesting."

This quartet is known for setting new musical standards due to profound difficult demands on the performers.

Tickets are now available at the official source to purchase Wharton Center tickets online, at the Auto-Owners Insurance Ticket Office, or by calling 1-800-WHARTON.
