UI String Quartet Residency Program

The University of Iowa String Quartet Residency Program continues a long tradition of fostering the highest level of string quartet playing and chamber music instruction at the University of Iowa. This exciting program brings nationally and internationally recognized string quartets to the University of Iowa School of Music annually for extended residences. During their stays on campus, guest artists give public performances, perform outreach events, and give master classes and public presentations on building all aspects of one’s chamber music career. Past UISQRP quartets have included the Brentano String Quartet, the Ying Quartet, the Cavani Quartet, and the Dalí Quartet.
