The Cavani String Quartet features Annie Fullard on violin, Mari Sato on violin, Kirsten Docter on viola and Merry Peckham on cello.

The performance will feature music by Franz Joseph Haydn, Bela Bartók and Antonin Dvorák.

The Cavani String Quartet is the winner of the prestigious Naumburg Chamber Music Award. It is the quartet-in-residence at the Cleveland Institute of Music. Formed in 1984, the Cavani Quartet is named after the 19th century violin makers Giovanni and Vincenzo Cavani.
