"The Rolston String Quartet performed with a maturity and cohesion rivaling the best string quartets in the world." (Musical Toronto) In 2018, the Quartet was the first international ensemble chosen for the prestigious Cleveland Quartet Award from Chamber Music America. In 2016, they won First Prize at the Banff International String Quartet Competition, Grand Prize at the 31st Chamber Music Yellow Springs Competition, and Astral’s National Auditions.
