About Maud Powell String Quartet

The Maud Powell String Quartet (MPSQ) is the premier string quartet of the EYSO Chamber Music Institute. A one-of-a-kind program among youth orchestras anywhere, it provides a chance to study and perform significant chamber music literature at the highest level and work with some of the finest artist teachers and chamber music coaches in the world. MPSQ works weekly with coaches Tim Archbold and Gina DiBello, violinist with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, as well as guest coaches including Rachel Barton Pine, Charlie Pikler, Isabella Lippi, Peter Slowik, Roland Vamos, Jaime Laredo, and members of the Pacifica Quartet. EYSO Honors Chamber Ensembles were conceived of by EYSO Executive Director Kathy Matthews, and members are supported on full scholarship through the generosity of the quartet’s founding sponsors and longtime EYSO patrons Ed and Joyce Dlugopolski.
