Named one of the greatest string quartets of the last 100 years by BBC Music Magazine, the Grammy-nominated Dover Quartet has become one of the most in- demand chamber ensembles in the world. In addition to its faculty role as the Penelope P. Watkins Ensemble in Residence at the Curtis Institute of Music, the Dover Quartet holds residencies with the Kennedy Center, Bienen School of Music at Northwestern University, Artosphere and the Amelia Island Chamber Music Festival.
Savannah native Joseph Conyers is an artist who has redefined classical music both as a genre and as a tool for social change and human connection. With his unique and outstanding strengths of musicianship, virtuosity, youth advocacy, and community engagement, Conyers’ work has created a blueprint for the multi-faceted, multi-dimensional 21st-century musician. He has been assistant principal bassist of the Philadelphia Orchestra since 2010.
