Allow me to start out by listing some problems with living in Manhattan:
1. Levain Bakery. It is 2 blocks from my apartment, and this is a problem. The raspberry bomboloncini I got this morning… I just can’t.
2. There is a chicken and waffles place literally behind my building
3. I keep getting on the wrong trains and ending up in the Bronx (this one is an actual problem)
4. There are so many wonderful musicians and friends on this tiny island, I feel like my heart might burst at any moment!! Ok not a problem, just sappy wonderfulness :)
We kicked off our residency at Juilliard and the start of a new academic year with a performance at Convocation, followed by a lavish picnic at Lincoln Center’s lovely hyperbolic paraboloid (see below)
We could not be more excited about our Juilliard residency, which includes coachings with the members of the beloved Juilliard String Quartet, as well as the opportunity to help lead the undergraduate String Quartet Survey course and to coach undergraduate chamber ensembles.
Also thrilling is our new snazzy website, which you no doubt have already stumbled upon if you are reading this blog. Our old site served us well and was in fact kind of a miracle, as Nick and Greg actually taught themselves how to code and just built the thing themselves in Aspen. But it’s time to move on, and I hope you enjoy the new scrolly homepage as much as I do. Please do drop by our schedule page, we are playing shows in
South Bend, IN
Mt. Vernon, OH
San Francisco, CA
Grand Rapids, MN
…just to throw some places out there. If we are in your town, let us know! We’re probably just hanging out in a tiny elevator all together like this one at Washington DC’s Cosmos Club, waiting to hang out with you-
Before I go, our friend Sara from the St. Lawrence String Quartet Seminar at Stanford wrote this great article on the program we’ve attended for three years and counting. Check it out and also enjoy this photo of SLSQ’s Geoff Nuttall coaching Nick on his hairstyle:
