The Spokane String Quartet was founded in 1979 in order to bring live, professional chamber music performances to Inland Northwest audiences. For the past 34 years, it has been the only chamber ensemble to present a regular concert series including music from the standard string quartet repertoire, contemporary works, premieres by local composers and music from the Moldenhauer Archives. The Quartet’s regular concert series takes place at the newly renovated Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox, 1001 W. Sprague Ave. in downtown Spokane, and in the beautiful and intimate atmosphere of the Bing Crosby Theater, 901 W. Sprague Ave.
The Spokane Chamber Music Association, incorporated in 1983, is a non-profit organization whose mission is to support and promote the musical and educational activities of the Spokane String Quartet. In 1998 the SCMA developed an educational outreach program which includes visiting area secondary schools and youth musical organizations, explaining the concerts and offering free and reduced-price tickets to area music students and their families. In addition, local student ensembles are invited to perform in the Met lobby prior to the Spokane String Quartet’s regular performances, giving these students much-appreciated performance opportunities. Groups which have appeared in this format include string quartets from the Spokane Youth Orchestra, Ferris High School, Eastern Washington University, and Coeur d’Alene.

We invite you to join us in the fall for the Spokane String Quartet’s 2013-14 season - great music, beautifully performed, in an exquisite setting - a sure antidote to the stresses of the day!
