"The exhilarating Rolston String Quartet … What great jubilance and exuberance these fresh-faced players radiated, and what a thrilling cohesion of phrasing and tone."

The 2016 First Prize winner of the prestigious Banff International String Quartet Competition, the Rolston String Quartet was named among the CBC’s 2016 “30 Hot Canadian Classical Musicians Under 30.”

The Rolston String Quartet has performed throughout the U.S., Canada, and Europe, and is currently the Graduate Quartet-in-Residence at Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music. The group has been enjoying an extraordinary journey since their win at The Banff competition in 2016. For MITM they bring a program that juxtaposes the rhythmic sounds of the Pacific and Atlantic oceans as depicted in R. Murray Schafer’s groundbreaking work Waves, with the Viennese lilt and charm of Franz Schubert’s Quartettsatz. This young foursome bring all of their passion and technical flare to the much-loved first quartet of Tchaikovsky which closes the program.
