Guelph Musicfest 2019 opens with the Rolston String Quartet. The 2018 recipient and first international ensemble chosen for the prestigious Cleveland Quartet Award from Chamber Music America, Canada’s Rolston String Quartet continues to receive acclamation and recognition for their musical excellence. In 2016, a monumental year, they won First Prize at the 12th Banff International String Quartet Competition (BISQC). That same year, the quartet’s winning included Astral’s National Auditions and Grand Prize of the 31st Chamber Music Yellow Springs Competition. They were also prizewinners at the 2016 Bordeaux International String Quartet Competition and the inaugural M-Prize competition. There is no wonder they were named among CBC Radio’s “30 Hot Canadian Classical Musicians Under 30” that year.
