Event Description:

Quartet San Francisco is a non-traditional and eclectic string quartet led by violinist Jeremy Cohen. The group played their first concert in 2001 and has recorded four albums. Playing a wide range of music genres from jazz to blues, tango to swing, and funk to pop, the group challenges the traditional classical music foundation of the string quartet.

Quartet San Francisco won a tango music competition in New York in 2004, and their albums have been nominated five times for Grammy Awards: three in the Best Classical Crossover Album category, and two for Best Engineered Album, Classical.

Quartet leader and violinist Jeremy Cohen founded the Quartet San Francisco as a forum to explore a multitude of musical styles that were important to him but were not being exercised in his work with other ensembles such as Turtle Island Quartet. Oakland-born-and-bred Cohen produces the quartet's albums on his own label, Violin Jazz. Classically trained under Itzhak Perlman and Anne Crowden, Cohen's playing style shows influences from violinists Fritz Kreisler, Joe Venuti and Eddie South.
