About the Quartet: Formed in 2022 at the University of Colorado Boulder, the Lírios Quartet comprises four emerging artists who have come together under the mentorship of the Takács Quartet. As the current Graduate String Quartet-in-Residence, the quartet is also engaged with developments in new music, taking part in the Pendulum New Music concert series with two premieres in the 2022-2023 season. Additionally, they collaborated with Sohap Ensemble and Art Song Colorado in the commissioning of a new chamber opera, Colorado Sky, including a workshop residency at the ATLAS Institute in January 2023.
