As the permanent quartet-in-residence of Music Haven, the Haven String Quartet’s mission is to integrate music and creative endeavor into community life. The quartet provides access to free music education and world-class chamber music performances to residents in New Haven’s most under-served neighborhoods. In conjunction with these activities, the Haven String Quartet actively performs in other communities, providing engaging performances in traditional concert halls and reaching new audiences in non-classical venues.
Each quartet member is an exemplary performer who also enjoys the work of a teaching artist. They have graduated from such institutions as Yale University, Juilliard School, New England Conservatory and Northwestern University and enjoy successful careers as performers and teachers.
Yaira Matyakubova and Gregory Tompkins are the Quartet’s resident violinists. Colin Benn and Philip Boulanger, respectively, are resident violist and resident cellist for the Haven String Quartet.
