The Heimat String Quartet was founded during the fall of 2014 in Boston, MA. All avid chamber musicians, each player brings a wide array of experience and renewed energy to both the music and the group. In 2015 , the quartet was selected as the graduate string quartet-in-residence at Kent State University where they are currently studying with the Miami String Quartet. Notable engagements have included performances and master classes at The College of New Jersey, Mercer College , Duke University, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill , Dickinson College , and participation in the Juilliard String Quartet Seminar this past May. The Heimat Quartet were the 2016 featured young artists for the 34th season of Music From The Western Reserve. In addition to performing, many of the members hold teaching positions in the greater Cleveland area where they are also the string quartet-in -residence at Western Reserve Academy in Hudson, Ohio.
