    Miro String Quartet

For over 20 years, the Miró String Quartet has been among the US's top chamber music groups. With performances in some of the world's most important music venues, their "explosive vigor and technical finesse" is world-renowned. Rex Hearn of the Palm Beach Arts Paper said recently, "Surely [Miró will] replace the Tokyo String Quartet…as the best of the best in the eyes and ears of today's concertgoers. They're poised for the top spot." Miró is the Faculty String Quartet-in-Residence at the Sarah and Ernest Butler School of Music at the University of Texas in Austin.
