The Dover Quartet
The young Philadelphia-based Dover Quartet catapulted to international notoriety after a sweep of the 2013 Banff Competition. The Quartet's rise from an up-and-coming young ensemble to holding a top spot in their field has been swift and expected. All members are highly awarded and have appeared as solo artists. First violinist Joel Lin took first prize at the Menuhin Competition; violinist Bryan Lee and violist Milena Pajaro-van de Stadt have appeared as soloists with the Philadelphia Orchestra and Tokyo Philharmonic, respectively; and cellist Camden Shaw released a solo album debut on the Unipheye Music label. The Dover Quartet spreads its music into under-served communities and is actively involved with Music for Food, an initiative enabling musicians to raise resources and awareness in the fight against hunger.
