Acknowledged as one of the finest young quartets in the country, the Baumer String Quartet was founded in 2003 by a group of young musicians at the Cleveland Institute of Music. They soon won the Silver Medal at the 2005 Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition and Second Prize at the 2005 Yellow Springs Chamber Music Competition. They have worked closely with members of the Cleveland, Alban Berg, Vogler, Emerson, Takacs, Cavani, Borromeo, Brentano, Orion, St. Lawrence, and Juilliard string quartets, as well as Isaac Stern in the “Stern Encounters” master class series. They were selected to participate in the international artist program at Music@Menlo and have served on the faculty of the Innsbrook Music Festival. With David Tanenbaum, the quartet recorded Aaron Jay Kernis’s 100 Greatest Dance Hits on the Black Box label.
Chamber Music at the Legion is a free concert series presented in collaboration with the San Francisco Friends of Chamber Music. Now in its fifth season, this popular chamber music series is presented on one weekend day of each month from February to July. Join us in celebrating the Legion’s restored period room, the Salon Doré from the Hôtel de La Trémoille and the special exhibition Intimate Impressionism from the National Gallery of Art.
