Described by the Chicago Tribune as "an ensemble that invites you - ears, mind, and spirit - into its music," the Avalon String Quartet has established itself as one of the country's leading chamber music ensembles. Avalon is currently quartet-in-residence at the Northern Illinois University School of Music, a position formerly held by the distinguished Vermeer Quartet. As part of their residency, Avalon performs an annual concert series in Chicago and DeKalb, and the quartet members teach individual studios and coach chamber music at the school. This follows previous residencies at the Juilliard School and Indiana University South Bend. Additional teaching activities have included the Interlochen Advanced Quartet Program, Madeline Island Music Camp, Icicle Creek Chamber Music Institute and the Britten-Pears School in England.
