 Garth Newel Piano Quartet

An active presence on the national and international stage, the Garth Newel Piano Quartet has performed throughout the United States and on five continents, at such prominent venues as Carnegie Hall, Strathmore Hall, The Chautauqua Institution, and the San Diego Chamber Music Workshop. The quartet believes strongly in promoting creativity, and holds an annual competition for rising composers aimed at bolstering the piano quartet genre. They regularly commission and premiere music of their contemporaries, such as Pulitzer Prize winner Paul Moravec, and David Biedenbender, for whom they have received the 2017 CMA commissioning grant. The Garth Newel Piano Quartet maintains a strong dedication to education and to nurturing the next generation of chamber musicians. They serve as faculty and directors for the Emerging Artist Fellowship Program, which gives talented college-age musicians an opportunity to study and perform chamber music under the guidance of the Quartet and world-renowned guest musicians. Other prominent programs include an annual Amateur Chamber Music Workshop and Music in the Schools residencies around Virginia and as far as Georgia. Additionally, the Quartet has given masterclasses at Universities and Conservatories throughout the world. LEARN MORE
