The internationally acclaimed ATTACCA QUARTET returns to Texas State for its continuing series of short residencies. Formed at the Juilliard School in 2003, their professional debut in 2007 was part of the Artists International Winners Series in Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall. For the 2014-2015 season, they were selected as the Quartet in Residence by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The Attacca Quartet’s most recent album release included string quartet works of TXST composer Michael Ippolito. These works were performed as part of the group’s residency at National Sawdust in Brooklyn, including three concerts of works by living composers.
