Biography

Formed in 2015 at the Cleveland Institute of Music, the Kalos Quartet studies under the tutelage of Peter Salaff and members of the Cavani String Quartet.
The quartet also had the privilege to study with Shmuel Ashkenasi, Stephen Rose, Mathias Tacke and Sæunn Thorsteinsdottir.  Its members have been winners of many competitions including first prize in the junior division at the 2014 Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition and first prize at the 2014 WDAV Chamber Music Competition.
The Kalos Quartet performs regularly for a variety of audiences throughout the greater Cleveland area.  They particularly seek to bring their music to those who may not have the opportunity to readily access classical music, young and old alike.
