Before the show starts, the little ones will have the chance to get up-close-and-personal with the violins, cellos and other string instruments, which may even inspire them to pick up a bow themselves.

Hailed by The New York Times as “something extraordinary,” the Parker Quartet has rapidly distinguished itself as one of the preeminent ensembles of its generation. The quartet began its professional touring career in 2002 and garnered international acclaim in 2005, winning the Concert Artists Guild Competition as well as the Grand Prix and Mozart Prize at the Bordeaux International String Quartet Competition in France. In 2009, Chamber Music America awarded the quartet the prestigious biennial Cleveland Quartet Award. The Parker’s recording of the Ligeti Quartets won a 2011 Grammy award for Best Chamber Music Recording.
