Pavo Quartet 2015

The Pavo Quartet formed in Chicago, Illinois in 2012 while its members, Jung Tsai (violin), Danielle Simandl (violin), Ashlyn Olson (viola), and Elisabeth Oar (cello) were attending the DePaul School of Music. They are faculty members of the Superior String Alliance Music Camp and performed with the SSA Chamber Players tour last summer. The Pavo Quartet was the Quartet-in-Residence at the 2014 U.P. Chamber Music Festival where they coached high school and middle school string chamber groups, and are excited to return for the 2015 Festival this February. The Pavo Quartet was selected as one of eight string quartets from around the world to attend FEMUSC, the largest classical music festival in South America. They travelled to Santa Catarina, Brazil this January to study under the renowned Arianna String Quartet at FEMUSC. The Pavo Quartet and the Superior String Alliance are thrilled to be working with Copper Country Suzuki Academy students this winter!
