Hesper Quartet

The Hesper String Quartet is a Korean-American chamber ensemble that was formed as a student group at Stony Brook University in 2022. Since its formation, the quartet has been accepted to the prestigious Emerson String Quartet Institute, where they have been mentored by Philip Setzer, Eugene Drucker, Lawrence Dutton, Paul Watkins, David Finckel, Jennifer Frautschi, and Colin Carr.

The Hesper Quartet has begun its journey maintaining an energetic balance of performing works by Beethoven, Schumann, and Haydn, while performing works by living composers such as Joan Tower. They have performed at the Staller Center for the Arts and have been praised for their group sound, artistry, and ensemble.

The members of the Hesper Quartet hold degrees from the Curtis Institute of Music, Yale University, Seoul National University, Korea National University of Arts, Stony Brook University, and New England Conservatory. All members of the quartet are doctoral candidates at Stony Brook University.
