Tesla Quartet Places at Multiple Competitions

May 14, 2012

The Tesla Quartet, graduate string quartet-in-residence at the CU College of Music, has earned the Gold Medal in the Senior Strings Division of the illustrious Fischoff Chamber Music competition.  After several rounds of rigorous competition, the Tesla Quartet emerged with the gold medal in the senior strings division along with a $3,000 cash prize.  In addition to the prize money, the Tesla Quartet will participate in a tour of the midwestern United States in October.

Also at London’s Wigmore Hall, the Tesla earned the Third Prize, which includes an appearance at the Menton Festival in southern France in the summer of 2013 or 2014.  The quartet is proud to carry on the tradition of their mentors, the Takacs Quartet, who won the first ever London Competition some 33 years ago.

The CU College of Music is proud to congratulate Tesla Quartet members Ross Snyder (violin), Michelle Lie (violin), Megan Mason (viola) and Kimberly Patterson (cello) on these fine achievements!
