Emerson String Quartet Tickets
Emerson String Quartet is one of the very few Quartets based in New York that has helped a great deal in reviving the classic beats. The title has been an inspiration from the great works of Ralph Waldo Emerson and that is the reason why the title Emerson String Quartet was finalized. Formed in 1976, the String Quartet has been appreciated of its ultimate performance with nine Grammy Awards while it produced almost thirty albums too. The quartet was earlier based at The Hartt School but later it shifted its residence to State University of New York at Stony Brook
