Join us in Story Chapel for an afternoon of music. New England Conservatory honors string ensemble Futura String Quartet will perform Mozart’s Quartet No. 14 in G Major, op. 387 and Beethoven op. 127.

Founded at the New England Conservatory in September of 2010 and currently an NEC Honors Ensemble, the Futura String Quartet was recognized early on as a promising young ensemble. Since being founded, the group has performed in NEC’s Jordan Hall multiple times, as part of its Chamber Music Gala series, the Conservatory’s 2011 Commencement Concert, and NEC Faculty member John Heiss’s Contemporary Ensemble series. In February 2011, they performed a concert presented by the Cape Cod Chamber Music Festival to benefit the Mustard Seed Kitchen in Wellfleet, MA. They were also participants of 2011 Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition and the 2011 McGill String Quartet Academy in Montreal, Quebec. 


The Futura String Quartet is currently studying with Roger Tapping. They have also been coached by the Borromeo String Quartet, Kim Kashkashian, John Gibbons, Lucy Chapman, Gerhard Schultz, Andre Roy, Peter Schuhmayer, and Keith Robinson. Members of the quartet have individually contributed to some of Boston’s most important musical endeavors, including Boston Philharmonic Orchestra and chamber orchestras such as A Far Cry, the Discovery Ensemble, and NEC’s own Chamber Orchestra. All members are current NEC Graduate students; Jeff Dyrda and Audrey Wright (violins) study with Lucy Chapman, Sam Gold (viola) studies with Roger Tapping, and Andrew Larson (cello) studies with Paul Katz.
