The Harbor String Quartet (HSQ) was founded in 1997 by members of the Virginia Symphony Orchestra. The group consists of classically trained musicians who perform locally with the Virginia Symphony, Virginia Opera, Virginia Musical Theater and Broadway on Tour. Each member has had extensive quartet experience over the years as a part of HSQ .
The HSQ’s diverse repertoire includes traditional classical music, rock and alternative requests, as well as jazz standards, Latin, Broadway songs and contemporary pop hits. Members of the group have performed with the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Tommy Lee Rock Star, Richard Marx, Josh Groban and Mannheim Steamroller, to name a few.
Educational Outreach Programs
Educational Outreach Programs are most popular with schools that nurture string ensembles such as orchestra and chamber music. The Harbor String Quartet is available to coach and guide young musicians with this repertoire, encouraging listening skills, as well as performance techniques. The coachings and masterclasses are not limited to grade students but can be utilized in other groups such as advanced amateurs and church groups.
