Baumer Quartet: Monterey Chamber Music Workshop

Acknowledged as one of the finest, young quartets in the country, the Baumer String Quartet was founded in 2003 by a group of young musicians at the Cleveland Institute of Music. The members of the quartet pursue parallel careers as international soloists, leaders and principal players of world-class orchestras, as members of eminent chamber groups, and as tutors and professors of music. The Baumer String Quartet comes together for a limited touring schedule on a project-by-project basis inspired by the success of the East Coast Chamber Orchestra and the New Orford String Quartet.
