Hailed for their "engaging and energetic performances" and the "ability to master music of any style or genre", the Tetra String Quartet continues to captivate audiences throughout the country and abroad. As advocates of chamber music, Tetra strives to make performance experiences relevant for any listener by sharing music of all kinds in both new and traditional venues. Most recently, the quartet embarked on a 10-day concert tour of Ecuador where they presented a series concerts and masterclasses in the cities of Quito, Loja, and Cuenca.
Passionate educators, the members of Tetra are faculty associates at Arizona State University where they teach the course "Chamber Music for Non-Majors". Recently through collaboration with ASU's Visiting Quartet Residency program, Tetra paired up with the acclaimed Brentano String Quartet in creating a workshop unlocking the secrets of Bartok's String Quartet No. 1 for hundreds of Arizona high school students. Brentano's cellist, Nina Lee, stated: "When I think about the future of classical music, the Tetra String Quartet gives me hope for a future filled with enthusiastic young listeners! Their dedication and energy is truly inspired. We should all be so lucky to have these educators be a part of our community!"
Recent engagements have found Tetra on tour throughout the U.S. and beyond, including California, Nebraska, Texas and Brazil. In 2011, they were named "Artists in Residence" for the Texas-based Music Bus Tour, which facilitated a number of memorable performances including concerts in the Alamo shrine and the Cleveland Correctional Facility. Also passionate about creating a musical presence in their own community of Phoenix, Tetra has been seen performing at Arizona State University, The Mayo Clinic, Phoenix Children's Hospital, Arizona School for the Arts, FilmBar, and MIM (The Musical Instrument Museum).
