The Spruce Quartet is coached by violist Roger Tapping of the faculty, a former member of the Takács Quartet and new member of the Juilliard Quartet. Tapping will play as a guest with the Quartet. The Quartet will also play an excerpt from a 2011 work by Cody W. Forrest '15 DMA, a student of Malcolm Peyton.
