Emory's String Quartet-in-Residence Program


The Vega Quartet

Emory's String Quartet-in-Residence program, held by the international award-winning Vega Quartet, lies at the heart of the ECMSA's mission to spread this great music throughout the community, reaching audiences ages 2 to 102. The Vega is the first professional string quartet to ever make Atlanta their home base and as such, they are having a transformational effect on music education and performance throughout the area.

The Vega gives 16 interdisciplinary classes each year across the curriculum in all the Schools of the University, and our newest initiative, Music for Healing, takes the Vega to health care centers around the Atlanta area bringing live music to those who need it most.
