The Touhill Performing Arts Center is proud to partner with UMSL’s renowned string faculty, the Arianna String Quartet. Formed in 1992, the ASQ established itself as one of America’s finest chamber ensembles, winning grand prizes in the Fischoff, Coleman, and Carmel Competitions. The ASQ has gone on to perform critically acclaimed concerts on five continents and has recorded extensively for the Centaur and Albany classical labels. In 2000 the ASQ joined the University of Missouri - St. Louis Faculty, teaching applied violin, viola, cello, coaching student chamber ensembles, teaching music history, and presenting interdisciplinary lectures highlighting connections between music and other academic disciplines.
