Emerging Artists Quartet-in-Residence – Lírios Quartet
MacPhail is excited to welcome the Lírios Quartet as our 2023 Madeline Island Chamber Music Emerging Artists Quartet in Residence!
Composed of violinists Benjamin Goldstein and Maggie Brady, violist Yuri Santos, and cellist Chas Barnard, the quartet formed in 2022 at the University of Colorado Boulder, where they studied under the mentorship of the world-renowned Takács Quartet. As the CU Boulder’s Graduate String Quartet in Residence, they engaged with developments in new music, taking part in the Pendulum New Music series with two premieres in the 2022-2023 season. They collaborated with the Sohap Ensemble and Art Song Colorado in a new chamber opera commission, “Colorado Sky,” that included a workshopping residency at the ATLAS Institute in January 2023.
The quartet specializes in outreach events, performing extensively in schools and retirement homes. They enjoy the opportunity to share what they do with these diverse audiences and look forward to playing for a wide range of patrons during their time in the Twin Cities.
