Hailed by musical professionals for their energy and commitment to music making, the Tower Quartet was formed in 2018 by current and former Fresno State graduate students. Combining a love for tradition with an eye towards inclusion, the Tower Quartet performs both in conventional and unusual spaces, bridging the gap between genres and generations.
They aim to honor classic chamber music while juxtaposing it with new works, particularly from composers in the California Central Valley community. With a passion for outreach and education, the Tower Quartet presents chamber performances and coaches music programs at public schools throughout the valley. In 2021 they launched a mentorship program where Tower Quartet members provide regular coaching for young string quartet ensembles. In an effort to keep chamber music appreciation growing and relevant, The Tower Quartet always strives to make chamber music accessible and exciting for their community.
