MAUD POWELL STRING QUARTET (MPSQ) Named for Maud Powell, America’s first international violin superstar, this string quartet is coached by Gina DiBello, violinist in the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. The quartet has worked with guest artists and coaches such as Midori, Rachel Barton Pine, Jaime Laredo and has explored the classic works of Mozart, Brahms, Ravel and String Quartet No. 3 by renowned composer Daniel Brewbaker, which was written for and premiered by MPSQ. MPSQ is offered tuition free* each year since it was founded in 2007 through the generosity of EYSO patrons Ed and Joyce McFarland Dlugopolski.
