About Rasa String Quartet:

Rasa String Quartet was formed in 2019 in Boston, MA, and is quickly emerging as one of New England’s finest young ensembles. In 2020, they won 1st prize in the Chamber Music Yellow Springs Competition and were selected as finalists for the Lakes Area Music Festival String Quartet Residency. They have been coached by distinguished artists such as Kim Kashkashian, Yeesun Kim, and Lucy Chapman, and have performed all across the New England area - including multiple appearances at Shalin Liu Performance Center and the TCAN Center for Arts. By performing repertoire from the classical, world, and folk genres at the highest level of artistry, Rasa String Quartet cultivates experiences that provoke powerful and uplifting emotions, foster meaningful connections, and help the classical culture become more accessible to all. Because of the ensemble’s progressive and accessible variety of programming, each concert exposes audience members to a wide range of genres, guaranteeing that there is always something everyone can relate to.
