Equally at home in both the concert hall and the rock club, Amaranth Quartet
has quickly established a unique niche within their city’s musical ecosystem
since their 2013 founding. While students at the San Francisco Conservatory of
Music, the quartet studied closely with members of the Ives, Kronos, and Concord
String Quartets. They have commissioned and premiered new music by composers
including Ryan Brown, Nick Benavides, Lucas Floyd, Riley Nicholson, and Kenji Oh.
Beyond classical repertoire, the quartet enjoys frequent collaborations with a
number of Bay Area favorites, such as Amie Cota, Diana Gameros, Kendra McKinley,
and Nahuel Bronzini. This season Amaranth Quartet will workshop and premiere
new works written by Haley Shaw, Jodie Rottle, and Stephanie Neumann.
