Members of Highland St. first crossed paths as younger musicians, and are thrilled to reunite as a 2017-2018 New England Conservatory Honors Ensemble. Highland St. is grateful to be coached by Paul Biss, and has played in masterclasses for members of the Parker and Borromeo Quartets, Kim Kashkashian, Lucy Chapman, and Merry Peckham. Previous coaches include Ayano Ninomiya, Kris Tong, and Guy Fishman. Individually, members of Highland St. have excelled in national solo and chamber music competitions, and have honed their chamber music skills at international music festivals. Highland St. is eager to pursue community outreach opportunities to increase the accessibility of chamber music in Boston. The quartet has collaborated on related work with From The Top, Music for Food, The Emerald Necklace Conservancy, and other Boston-area projects. In addition to their upcoming Jordan Hall recital, Highland St. will present a series of concerts in April in Cape Cod in collaboration with From The Top.
