RAC Presents The Parker Quartet
Our Redwood Arts audiences have fond memories of the Parker Quartet from when they appeared here in February of 2013. Inspiring performances, luminous sound, and exceptional musicianship are the hallmarks of the Grammy Award-winning Parker Quartet. Renowned for its dynamic interpretations and polished, expansive colors, the group has rapidly distinguished itself as one of the preeminent ensembles of its generation.

The Quartet has appeared at the worlds most important venues since its founding in 2002 including the Kennedy Center, the Lincoln Center and the National Gallery of Art in D.C. The Quartets 2018-19 season has performances and residencies scheduled around the United States and Europe, including at the University of Iowa, the University of Chicago, the Wigmore Hall, and the University of South Carolina.

The  Parker  Quartet has  distinguished  itself  with acclaimed  recordings  for  Nimbus,  Zig-Zag Territoires,  Innova  Records,  and  Naxos.  The  Quartets  most  recent  recording  featuring Mendelssohns Quartets Op. 44, Nos. 1 and 3, was widely lauded by the international press. The Quartets debut commercial recording of Bartóks String Quartets Nos. 2 and 5 for Zig-Zag Territoires (July 2007) won praise from Gramophone. Their Naxos recording of György Ligetis complete works for  string  quartet won the  2011 Grammy Award for  Best Chamber Music Performance.

Founded and currently based in Boston, the Parker Quartets numerous honors include winning the Concert Artists Guild Competition, the Grand Prix and Mozart Prize at Frances Bordeaux International String Quartet Competition, and Chamber Music Americas prestigious Cleveland Quartet Award. Now Blodgett Artists-in-Residence at Harvard Universitys Department of Music, and also in-residence at USC School of Music, the Quartets numerous residencies have included serving as Artists-in-Residence at the University of St. Thomas (20122014), Quartet-in- Residence at the University of Minnesota (2011 2012), Quartet-in-Residence with the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra (2008-2010), and as the first-ever Artists-in-Residence with Minnesota Public Radio (2009-2010).

The Parker Quartets members are Daniel Chong, violin, Ken Hamao, violin, Jessica Bodner, viola and Kee-Hyun Kim, cello. The musicians hold graduate degrees in performance and chamber music from the New England Conservatory of Music and the Juilliard School, and the Quartet was part of the New England  Conservatorys  prestigious  Professional  String  Quartet  Training  Program from 20062008.
