Calidore String Quartet
The New York Times

By Michael Cooper

A major new chamber music award, the $100,000 M-Prize from the University of Michigan’s School of Music, Theater & Dance, was given for the first time on Thursday evening to the Calidore String Quartet.

The prize was the idea of Aaron Dworkin, the school’s new dean, who sees it as a way to focus attention on chamber music, an increasingly important part of the musical landscape. The Calidore quartet’s award was announced as part of a performance that was broadcast on Detroit Public Television, after two days of final competition concerts in Ann Arbor, Mich.

Mr. Dworkin, who founded the Sphinx Organization, which promotes diversity in classical music, said in a statement that the group was “a perfect example of the extraordinary talent that we seek to showcase with this competition.” The quartet, which formed in 2010 at the Colburn School of Music, is in residence at Stony Brook University on Long Island. It will join the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center Two roster, which presents young artists on the brink of big careers, this year. The group features Jeffrey Myers and Ryan Meehan on violin, Jeremy Berry on viola and Estelle Choi on cello.
