The Cordova Quartet has dedicated themselves to two things: performance and education.
Since their formation at Rice University in 2013, the Cordova Quartet has performed across the United States, including engagements in Texas, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and North Carolina. With a passion for education, the quartet has presented concerts and workshops for students of all ages in Austin, Texas through its partnership with the Austin Chamber Music Center. Composed of Andy Liang and Niccoló Muti on violins, Blake Turner on viola, and Matt Kufchak on cello, the Cordova Quartet actively seeks to engage their community in diverse ways.
In addition to traditional performances in concert halls, the quartet has performed in libraries, art galleries, and bars. They are currently the Young Professional String Quartet in Residence at the University of Texas at Austin where they study with the Miró Quartet, and were a featured ensemble at the Butler School of Music’s Centennial Celebration Gala. The Cordova recently performed at the Four Seasons Chamber Music Festival in Greenville, North Carolina, collaborating with renowned pianist Robert McDonald. Upcoming engagements include performances for Incontri Musicali in Raleigh, North Carolina and Charleston, South Carolina, and for the Classical Chamber Concerts series in Austin.
You can check out the Cordova Quartet’s next show on Saturday, January 31st at the Round Rock Presbyterian Church or you can stream them right here at KUTX!
