About the Chimeng String Quartet

The members of the Chimeng String Quartet are presently undergraduate students at the Bard College Conservatory of Music. They all were born and raised in China. The quartet’s name – the Chinese word “Chimeng” means “enlightenment.”

In 2010 the Chimeng String Quartet was awarded the Silver Medal in the Senior Division of the Fischoff Chamber Music Competition in South Bend, Indiana. They made their orchestral debut with the Albany Symphony, conducted by David Alan Miller, in Takuma Itoh’s Concerto for String Quartet and Orchestra.

At Bard, they study with violinists Ida Kavafian, Arnold Steinhardt, and Laurie Smukler; violists Ira Weller, Steven Tenenbom and Michael Tree; and cellists Peter Wiley and Sophie Shao. Additionally, they have worked with members of the Guarneri, Tokyo, Orion, Keller, Shanghai, Ying, and Mendelssohn quartets.  MORE
