La Catrina String Quartet
Since its founding in 2007, La Catrina String Quartet (LCSQ) has been recognized as the new vanguard for contemporary Latin American string quartet repertoire. Their mission is three-fold: a deep commitment to the cultivation of new works by living U.S. composers and throughout the Americas; the programming of existing Latin American works rarely performed in the U.S. and abroad; and bringing fresh interpretations to classical, romantic, and twentieth-century masterpieces. Hailed by Yo-Yo Ma as “wonderful ambassadors for Latin American music,” LCSQ members are from Mexico
