Music Festival veterans, The Montana Chamber Music Society with Muir Members and Guests take the stage on July 12th. The Muir String Quartet is acknowledged as one of the world’s most powerful and insightful ensembles, with a long list of accolades and awards including a Grammy, two Grand Prix du Disques, and the Gramophone Award.
The Muir Quartet has been in residence at Boston University’s College of Fine Arts since 1983, and gives annual summer workshops at the Boston University Tanglewood Institute (BUTI). The Muir Quartet has also given master classes at schools worldwide, including the Eastman School of Music, the Curtis Institute, Oberlin Conservatory, the Shepherd School of Music at Rice University, and all of the major conservatories in China. From 1989-2015, the Muir presented the Emerging Quartets and Composers Program in Utah with eminent composer Joan Tower; they continue to perform regularly for Rhode Island College’s President’s Fine Arts Series, the Montana Chamber Music Society, and at benefit events for Classics for Kids Foundation.
