The Marian Anderson String Quartet (MASQ) creates new and diverse audiences for string quartet concerts.
In 1991, MASQ won the International Cleveland Quartet Competition, becoming the first African American ensemble in history to win this classical music competition. To highlight their achievement, MASQ asked the renowned contralto, Marian Anderson, for permission to use her name as their own. Miss Anderson responded with heartfelt approval.
In 1993, the Marian Anderson String Quartet performed at Washington D.C.’s Kennedy Center as part of the 52nd presidential inaugural celebration. MASQ has given performances at the Da Camera Society, the San Luis Obispo Mozart Festival and the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center.
