Known for performances marked by “a maturity and cohesion rivaling the best string quartets in the world” (Musical Toronto), the Rolston String Quartet took home first prize in the 2016 Banff International String Quartet Competition, sending them on a concert tour that included Germany, Italy, Austria, Canada, and the United States. Performance highlights have included the Smithsonian, Kennedy Center, Koerner Hall at the Toronto Royal Conservatory of Music, and the Esterhazy Palace. The Quartet—Luri Lee (violin), Jeffrey Dyrda (violin), Hezekiah Leung (viola), and Jonathan Lo (cello)—currently serves as quartet-in-residence for the Yale School of Music, having recently completed a tenure as graduate quartet-in-residence at Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music.
