Established in 1989, the St. Lawrence String Quartet has developed an undisputed reputation as one of the world’s great ensembles. The group performs around the world, and has served as the Ensemble-in-Residence at Stanford University since 1998. The St. Lawrence continues to build its reputation for imaginative and spontaneous music-making through an energetic commitment to the great established quartet literature, as well as the championing of new works by such composers as John Adams, Osvaldo Golijov, Ezequiel Vinao and Jonathon Berger. Lesley Robertson and Geoff Nuttall are founding members of the group and hail from Edmonton, Alberta and London, Ontario respectively. Christopher Costanza is from Utica, NY, and joined the group in 2003. Owen Dalby, from the San Francisco Bay area, joined in 2015. All four members of the quartet live and teach at Stanford University in California.
