Canada’s Rolston String Quartet was the 2018 recipient of the prestigious Cleveland Quartet Award from Chamber Music America. In 2016 they earned First Prize at the 12th Banff International String Quartet Competition. The Banff win took the quartet on their first international tour. Recent seasons have seen the Quartet tour the world.

The Rolston String Quartet began their two-year term as the Yale School of Music’s Fellowship Quartet-in-Residence in the fall of 2017. Notable collaborations include performances with Andrés Díaz, Gilbert Kalish, Mark Morris, Arthur Rowe, Robert McDonald, Donald Palma, Jon Kimura Parker, and Miguel da Silva. They have worked with songwriter Kishi Bashi, and composers John Luther Adams and Brian Current. They take their name from Canadian violinist Thomas Rolston, founder and long-time director of the Music and Sound Programs at the Banff Centre.
