 Elisabeth Luce Moore Chamber Music Residency

2024 Skidmore String Festival featuring the Miró Quartet and Lara Downes


For 20 years, Skidmore has invited world-renowned chamber musicians to perform alongside our students in the annual String Festival, generously supported by the family of Elisabeth Luce Moore. This year, festival activities include individual and group coaching with pianist Lara Downes and the Miró Quartet, one of America’s most celebrated ensembles, culminating in a free public concert. The evening’s program will include chamber pieces that the students have studied and coached with Carnegie Hall’s Ensemble Connect and the Sphinx Virtuosi, as well as two works they will perform with the Miró and Lara Downes – Lyric for Strings by George Walker and Rounds by Jessie Montgomery.


Presented in partnership with the Saratoga Performing Arts Center. Join us on Sunday, April 21 at 3:00pm at the Spa Little Theater for Here On Earth, a new collaboration between Lara Downes and the Miró Quartet, featuring musical depictions of our planet earth, its evolution, and the lives of its inhabitants, newly commissioned in 2023. Go to for tickets.
