The lively, contemporary program for all ages will feature music by Michael Jackson, Chick Corea, the Beatles, Jeremy Cohen, and Giovanni Solima, as well as some tangos and regional folk music from Mongolia.  Grammy nominees for their last three CD releases and Argentine Consulate International Tango competition winners in New York, the quartet San Francisco expresses itself in its agility and virtuosic playing.

Founded in 2001 by celebrated Bay Area violinist and composer-arranger Jeremy Cohen, Quartet San Francisco includes violinist Steve Huber, violist Chad Kaltinger and cellist Andres Vera.

As crossover specialists QSF excels in multiple styles, from jazz to tango, pop to funk, blues to bluegrass, gypsy swing to big band, and beyond. Winning praise for their eclectic programming and Cohen‘s innovative arrangements of tango, jazz, and pop music, and their energetic readings of contemporary composers, this string quartet brings a refreshingly new repertoire to chamber music.

QSF’s most recent release, Pacific Premieres: New Works by California Composers (2013), received two Grammy nominations for composers Gordon Goodwin and Vince Mendoza. Previous recordings include QSF Plays Brubeck(2009), Whirled Chamber Music (2007), and Latigo (2006). All three discs received Grammy nominations for Best Classical Crossover CD and two were also awarded nominations for Best Engineered, Classical.

In July and August the quartet will be touring in Europe, performing in Cremona, Arcidosso, Lucca and Foggia in Italy. In Cremona – the home of the Antonio Stradivari, the world’s most famous luthier (violin maker) – QSF will be presented by the Cremona Luthiers Consortium. From Italy, the quartet will travel to Southern Germany where they will perform at the Festaal Weissenau in Ravensburg, near Lake Constance.
