“The significance of this event is hard to overestimate… lyricism at its finest.” – KC Arts Beat
Described as a “brilliant young string quartet” by London’s Spectator and giving “certainly passionate performances” by The Kansas City Star, Opus 76 Quartet are proud to be artists-in-residence at MTC.
Their residency, which began as digital artists-in-residence in 2021, saw them embark on a number of critically acclaimed recording projects in partnership with The Midwest Trust Center as part of their innovative digital concert series, “Eat, Drink & Play!” Adding to their previous recordings of “The Complete Works for String Quartet by Ludwig van Beethoven,” (broadcast live on Kansas Public Radio (KPR) in 2020), Opus 76 recorded Mendelssohn’s Op. 44 No. 1, Schubert’s Quintet in C, Brahms’s F minor Piano Quintet, Mozart’s Quintet No. 3 in C Major, Bartok’s Quartet No. 1 and Mozart’s The Six Quartets Dedicated to Haydn, a project also supported by KPR.
In addition to a national touring schedule, as part of their residency the Quartet runs The Sunrise Programme, which provides a year of free lessons and performance opportunities to selected students in the Kansas City metro area.
